Subscribe to Oneindia News

Congress vice president and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav held a joint roadshow in Agra on Friday.

This was the second roadshow of the two leaders in the politically crucial state which will see a seven-phase election for its 403 assembly seats.

The two politicians, who are seen by their party cadre as youth leaders, had on Tuesday shared the stage for a joint press conference in Lucknow. The two parties forged an electoral alliance to keep the Bharatiya Janata Party out of power in the state.

Earlier, Rahul compared the alliance between the two parties as being similar to the merging of the rivers Ganga and the Yamuna at the Sangam.

Reports say that although joint campaigns are going on smoothly, the two allies have not reached any consensus on some crucial seats. The picture is not clear on the 10 assembly constituencies in Rae Bareli and Amethi.

After several rounds of negotiations, the two parties finally agreed that Congress would fight in 105 seats and SP on 298 seats.
