SP will contest 2017 UP Assembly polls alone: Akhilesh Yadav

Kanpur: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday said his Samajwadi Party (SP) will contest the 2017 state assembly elections alone. 

"Samajwadi Party will fight the next Assembly election in the state alone," CM Akhilesh said when reporters asked him about possible alliance partners in the polls for his party.

Mr Yadav was at the Green Park Stadium here to attend a ceremony to welcome the 'Asha Yatra' - from Kanyakumari to Kashmir - of spiritual guru Sri M or Mumtaz Ali Khan. He said as Chief Minister, he is of no one party and works for development of all.

Without taking name of any individual or party Mr Yadav said those who are raking up the Ram Temple issue ahead of the 2017 polls are "polluting" the atmosphere of the country and the state.

"Anything beyond limit is wrong and is considered as pollution. Which party is spreading pollution in the state or in the country? You know it better than I do. Catch them and ask them," he told media persons when asked about the issue.
