Madhya Pradesh: Samajwadi Party Chief Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday asked people of Madhya Pradesh to consider the upcoming assembly elections in the state as the election of the country, while addressing a rally in Rewa.

"Consider this (Assembly) election as the election of the country. Your vote will send a message in the coming elections... BJP people are liars, they do not fulfil what they promise. It was said that the income of farmers would be doubled but inflation was doubled...," Akhilesh Yadav said.

"Samajwadi Party has been contesting elections in Madhya Pradesh for many years… it has worked in the state and there is a need for socialist ideology… unemployment, inflation and injustice have increased. We hope that this time SP will win more seats...," Akhilesh Yadav said.

Further speaking at the rally, Akhilesh Yadav said, "Yes, I accept that there is I.N.D.I.A. alliance, but within the alliance, there is Samajwadi Party and it has a fight of its own".

Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh are due to be held later this year.

Speaking about I.N.D.I.A. bloc, Akhilesh Yadav on Tuesday made it clear that anyone who is with the BJP will not get entry in their alliance.

However, in an apparent jibe at the State Congress leadership for claiming that it was preparing to contest all 80 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh, Akhilesh said, "Why only 80? They may contest many more seats across the country. The Congress deserves to decide how many seats they want to contest, but when it comes to the I.N.D.I.A. alliance, the decision will be taken by the Congress' national leadership. When discussions are being held at the national level, then such questions should not come up. Such questions seem an attempt to create a rift in the alliance."
