Will wait and watch: Mayawati on BSP-SP alliance rumours

When pressed about whether he would consider partnering with the BSP given what the exit polls were suggesting, significantly Akhilesh said no one wants to see President's Rule in UP. The ruling Samajwadi Party forged an alliance with the Congress and entered into a seat sharing arrangement with it. SP Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agarwal was quick to point out that Akhilesh Yadav did not mention Mayawati by name, but also added that Akhilesh wanted to stop communal forces.

Interestingly, Akhilesh used the relation of Bua-Bhatija (nephew-aunt), the same address he has used to take a dig on the BSP supremo, to say that he respects Mayawati as a leader after she considers him his nephew. "I am saying that the Samajwadi-Congress alliance will win majority of the seats and form government", Akhilesh said.

Amar Singh hailed PM Modi and said that PM was not wrong when he said there has been no development in Uttar Pradesh. In an interview with BBC, Akhilesh Yadav said, "We are confident of winning UP". Angry SP legislators and supporters descended on the guest house on Mirabai Marg in Lucknow where Ms. Mayawati was staying and assaulted her, bringing to an end that relationship.

On Thursday, the Times Now-VMR exit poll gave BJP the maximum seats in UP, between 190-200, while consigning the SP-Congress combine to a mere 110-130 seats, and the BSP to a poor third at 57-74. In fact, some exit polls have even indicated a clear mandate for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh. All Exit polls are showing "lotus" blooming in Uttar Pradesh. Akhilesh said if the SP-Congress combined falls short of the majority mark in the Uttar Pradesh assembly elections then he is ready to tie up with the BSP.

The India TV-C Voter poll also showed BJP just ahead at 155-167 seats, while the SP-Congress alliance was placed second at 135-147.

The results of assembly elections in five states- UP, Uttarakhand, Punjab, Manipur and Goa will be announced on March 11.
