Guwahati, May 3: Samajwadi Party General Secretary Amar Singh today said his party will not join hands with the Congress and remain with the United National Progressive Alliance (UNPA). He made this statement at a press conference here after rubbishing the rumours that the Congress and SP are coming together to defeat BSP Supreme Mayawati in Uttar Pradesh.

''It is a fact that the Congress, which has no existence in Uttar Pradesh, have found SP lesser evil than the Mayawati regime but that does not mean that we are coming closer,'' he said. However, the Congress-SP alliance has started popping up with UP Chief Minister Mayawati training the guns on both of them. There was also some possible development between the two parties for the upcoming Assembly polls in Karnataka.

In a move to scare the BJP in Karnataka, the Congress has decided to withdraw its candidate against the saffron party's Chief Ministerial candidate B S Yeddyurappa to ensure a direct contest with former Chief Minister and SP leader S Bangarappa. Mr Singh also took a dig at National Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar terming him ''3D politician''.

''Mr Pawar is a 3D politician. At the Centre, he is with the UPA and Congress. In Maharashtra, he is with the Shiv Sena and in Meghalaya he is with the BJP. This is amazing,'' he said assuring that his party has no plans to truck with the Congress.

The SP leader along with MP Jayaprada were in the city for cementing the AGP-UNPA tie-up as the former is veering towards the BJP.
