Bhopal, Dec 13 (UNI) The Samajwadi Party (SP) is making attempts to strike an electoral alliance with the Gondwana Ganatantra Party and the Samanta Dal in Madhya Pradesh where Assembly polls are scheduled next year.
''The objective is to enhance the SP's strength. Related discussions are underway with the leaders of parties concerned,'' SP state president Narayan Tripathi told reporters here today. His party has seven MLAs in this state.
Regarding senior SP legislator Vijay Bahadur Singh Bundela having apparently shifted loyalties to the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Mr Tripathi claimed Mr Bundela himself denied any such development.
''Sangharsh-2008' is the name of our grassroots struggle against the anti-people policies of the Centre's United Progressive Alliance regime and this state's BJP government. The SP organisation will be strengthened down to the level of the polling centre. Programmes such as rallies, sit-in, demonstrations and people's agitation will continue till the hustings,'' Mr Tripathi added.
