Subsequent to SP fielding its candidate Ashok Agarwal from Mathura in place of present Congress MLA from Mathura Pradeep Mathur, things are not looking good if we talk of the supposed alliance between Samajwadi Party and Congress.
Some of the tickets given to SP leaders ahead of the Congress stalwarts prove that there can be a rift leading to problems in the expected SP-Congress alliance. Congress MLA Pankaj Chowdhary has been ignored by Akhilesh Yadav as he gave ticket to Manish Chauhan from the same place.
On the other hand Khurja seat from Bulandshehar has been given to Nandkishore Valmiki ahead of the Congress MLA Vanshi Singh Pahadia.
Yohesh Khushwaha has been given ticket from the Govindnagar seat of Kanpur ignoring Congress senior leader Ajay Kapoor.
