Saharanpur: The chief of Uttar Pradesh Congress unit Raj Babbar today ruled out the Congress having alliance with any party in the coming state Assembly elections lined up in 2017.

Babbar said the state Congress is “capable enough” to fight elections on its own and ruled out any alliance with any party in the coming Assembly polls slated next year.

He criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s decision to demonetise high-value banknotes, alleging that the decision was taken to benefit a “few of his friends”.

While interacting with media persons he said, “The money people will now spend will directly benefit those running the ‘swiping’ empire of the country. The entire nation is in distress because of the note-ban.”
