In the 1993 Uttar Pradesh elections, SP founder President Mulayam Singh Yadav had joined hands with the then Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) chief Kanshi Ram to give a jolt to the BJP.

The SP-BSP combine formed the government with the support of other parties, even as the BJP had emerged as the single largest party at that time.

The NCP spokesperson said at present BJP regime was rejected by the people of the state, all community is going away from BJP.

Its leaders are also resigning from the party.

Anti-Incumbency in the state is at a higher level, people want change in the state.

On being asked about the other two-state which NCP is going to contest, he said the party was already in alliance with the Congress party in Manipur, and in Goa, talks are underway with other parties as Congress has decided to go solo in the coastal state.
