Congress and the Samajwadi Party have reached a consensus regarding seat sharing for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. Akhilesh Yadav’s party and other INDIA alliance partners will contest 17 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, with Congress contesting 17 Lok Sabha seats.

The Samajwadi Party of Akhilesh Yadav (SP) and other alliance partners will run for the remaining 63 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, while the Congress will contest 17 seats.

“I am delighted to tell you that it has been decided that in Uttar Pradesh the INC will contest on 17 seats and the remaining 63 seats will have candidates from the INDIA Alliance – from SP and other parties,” Congress Uttar Pradesh in-charge Avinash Pande said while addressing a press conference on Wednesday.

This is the first major seat-sharing agreement between the opposition-led INDIA bloc and its partners.
