Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav has made it clear that his party is ready to sacrifice few seats to defeat the BJP in 2019 general elections and form a grand alliance. Addressing a rally on Sunday, Akhilesh said, “We are committed to the alliance with the BSP and will continue working with them, even if we have to sacrifice 2-4 seats, we are not going to stop. We will bring the BJP down.” Joint opposition candidates had emerged victorious in the recent Lok Sabha by-elections in Kairana, Gorakhpur and Phulpur. However, there have been questions about the sustainability of the ‘grand alliance’.
