With the exit polls not giving the Samajwadi Party the best of chances in Uttar Pradesh, Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav has said that he is ready for a tie up with the Bahujan Samaj Party.

Akhilesh ready for tie up with BSP

In an interview with the BBC, Akhilesh has said that he is ready to tie up with the BSP, if the SP-Congress combine falls short of the majority mark in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2017.

Uttar Pradesh Exits Poll 2017 - 403 Seats / 202 to win
  India News-MRC Times Now-VMR C-Voter ABP News-Lokniti Chanakya
SP - Congress Alliance 120 110 to 130 135 to 147 156 to 169 88
BJP 185 190 to 210 155 to 167 164 to 176 285
BSP 90 57 to 74 81 to 93 60 to 72 27
Others 08 08 08 to 10 02 to 06 03

The announcement comes as a surprise since the SP and the BSP have been the main competitors in the state for the past 15 years. The SP had tied up with the Congress for the elections.

However none of the exit polls are giving the SP-Congress alliance the edge in the elections. Most of the exit polls have predicted a big win for the BJP or a neck to neck fight. No party has however been given a huge majority in the exit polls which came out on Wednesday.
