Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday said the decision to join the UPA government at the Centre in the changed political scenario would be taken by SP supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav. Mulayam is going to Delhi and will decide on the SP stand regarding joining UPA”, Akhilesh told reporters at Rajbhawan. He was asked to comment on the reported statement of Congress leader Digvijay Singh that SP could join the UPA government.
The relation of SP with Congress will be decided by Mulayam. SP had given support to Congress-led UP but did not join the government earlier”, Akhilesh added. Senior SP leader and cabinet minister Azam Khan when asked on the issue, said, a party like SP does not take any political decision on statements issued in media.
