Maharashtra Elections: Will SP, BSP join hands?

Earlier, Samajwadi Party and Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) joined hands to form an alliance in Uttar Pradesh


After forming an alliance in Uttar Pradesh ahead of the 2019 general elections, Samajwadi Party (SP) and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) may come together in Maharashtra. 

However, no official declaration has been made regarding the same and there is no clarity on the seat share for the upcoming polls. SP and BSP may decide on the alliance in Maharashtra soon, according to sources. 

With another existing alliance between Bharip Bahujan Mahasangh (BBM) and All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) under the banner of ‘Vanchit Bahujan Aghadi’ - a front for the deprived caste and communities, this can affect the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance.
