Mulayam Singh’s SP to join UPA government
Mulayam Singh’s SP to join UPA governmentThe supreme wheeler-dealer of the Congress party, Pranab Mukherjee met Mulayam Singh Yadav, chief of the Samajwadi Party(SP), and hammered out a deal through which the SP will now support the next UPA government which will be constituted after the 15th Lok Sabha is convened.
As per convention and precedent, President Pratibha Patil may most likely invite the UPA to form the next government, if that coalition becomes the only alliance having the maximum seats as widely predicted by all the polls.
In such a case, UPA will be given 15 days time to win the vote of confidence of the 15th Lok Sabha.
It is reported that Rahul Gandhi, Congress general secretary and Amar Singh, SP general secretary also met to iron out details of SP support to Congress.
