Chennai, Mar 16 (UNI) The Samajwadi Party will have a tie-up with either front that allot adequate seats to it for the May eight elections to the Tamil Nadu Assembly, party's state unit President M Gopalakrishnan said today.

Talking to reporters here, he said the party was holding talks with both the fronts headed by the ruling AIADMK and the opposition DMK-led DPA.

''Whoever formally invites us and allots us adequate seats, we will have a tie-up with them,'' he said.

A final decision would be taken by March 19, when Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav's son Akilesh Yadav and Chairman UP Legislative Council Sukhram Singh Yadav visit Tirunelveli on March 19 to kick off the party's election campaign.

He claimed that the SP had a vote bank of nearly 30,000 to 40,000 that would decide the outcome in at least 20 seats in the State.

As there was no political movement to show the way, Yadavas and other backward communities and minorities were looking up to the Samajawadi party to take them forward, Mr Gopalakrishnan said.

He said all minority communities had promised to extend support to the party.
