Party sources said the last date for filing the nominations in the first phase of polls on February 11 is still three days away as it closes only on January 24 while the nominations will close for the second phase of polls on February 15 only on January 27. "Akhilesh Yadav kept on changing goal posts". Two, bagging a few ministerial berths if the voters repose their faith in Akhilesh. The SP felt that the Congress would be satisfied if a chunk of the constituencies falling under Amethi and Rae Bareli was given to the grand old party. The Congress which had won 27 seats in 2012, but now held only 18 seats had been demanding for almost 140 seats in the pre-poll alliance.

Earlier on Saturday, talking about the alliance, senior SP leader Naresh Agrawal said, "The alliance is nearly over".

Akhilesh is likely to formally announce about alliance with Congress during Samajwadi Party manifesto release. "We share many common ideologies", he said. This explains, how the entire Congress campaign till now was centred around 27Saal-UP Behaal targeting both SP and BSP.

Senior Congress sources said that Rahul Gandhi who always of the opinion that Congress should go alone in the polls wanted higher number of seats.

Mr. Babbar said the tie-up would usher in a "new beginning" in State and national politics and vowed to "throw out communal forces and BJP". "The country's secular fabric will become stronger when Akhilesh Yadav becomes the Chief Minister again", he added maintaining that uprooting the BJP is the main agenda of the alliance.

Unfortunately, those who are using an older Samsung phone that are not listed may not expect to see the update on their handsets. Since the Galaxy Note 5 didn't launch in the UK, Galaxy Note 4 users will not be able to enjoy the latest OS on their devices.

Sources said that Congress strategists felt that they should accept the SP's offer rather than risk electoral humiliation.

Congress leadership's insistence on sending people like Prashant Kishore and Dheeraj Shrivastava, who are politically insignificant in Congress hierarchy, had also irked Samajwadi Party. One a national party can not fight on less than 100 seats. As things stand, the alliance could come unstuck unless the Congress decides to scale down its demands.

"The Samajwadi Party and the Congress party will fight the 2017 Assembly elections jointly", SP state president Naresh Uttam told a press conference with UP Congress chief Raj Babbar at his side.

As many as 59 Shivpal loyalists (whose names were in the list of candidates that was declared by Shivpal at the time of the rift with Akhilesh) were denied tickets in the fresh list released by the CM.
