New Delhi, Dec 3: It looks like Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav is aiming to make his presence felt in the national politics.

After West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee's march to Delhi to protest over the demonetisation issue--which is seen by many as her attempt to be part of the national politics--the UP CM has "indirectly" expressed his desire to be part of Delhi politics soon.

Speaking at the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit on Friday, Yadav said, "The journey of national politics starts in Uttar Pradesh."

He also warned the BJP in the same breath.

"If the Samajwadi Party comes to power in UP again, it will be a warning sign for the BJP," said Yadav.

The assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh are due in few months from now.

According to reports the elections will be four cornered--where the BJP, Congress, Bahujan Samaj Party and Samajwadi Party--will fight a tough battle to win the trust of voters.

Yadav said Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati has no chance of making a comeback in the state.

"People had to leave their shoes outside when they came to meet her. Memorials of her corruption are still standing all over in Uttar Pradesh," he said.
