Sources say that the Akhilesh Yadav’s is reported to be miffed with the Congress over undisclosed issues, adding a layer of complexity to the negotiation process.
The two parties allied for the 2017 assembly elections but their leaders campaigned separately. The alliance remained merely on the paper as the BJP stormed back to power.

It got just 2.33% votes in the 2022 assembly polls while the SP polled 32.06% and Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) 2.85%.
