    The Congress which would be leading this meeting is yet to get a confirmation from BSP supremo, Mayawati. The party is still not clear if the meeting would be attended by Mayawati herself or by her deputy Satish Chandra Misra.

    The meeting is scheduled to be held on December 10 at 3.30 pm at Parliament House Annexe. The BSP is however expected to take its time in making a decision. It would not want to be part of any meeting until a seat sharing arrangement in UP is reached. The party which put up a dismal performance in both the assembly polls and the 2014 Lok Sabha elections wants a fair share of the seats, before it makes any commitment.
