New Delhi: Samajwadi Party and Congress have reportedly sealed their alliance for the upcoming Uttar Pradesh Assembly elections after intensive negotiations. The Congress has agreed on 105 seats, sources said.

Until Saturday, an alliance between the two parties seemed difficult as the Akhilesh Yadav-led SP was ready to offer only 99 seats to Rahul Gandhi’s party, which was unacceptable to Congress.

Samajwadi Party has already announced a list of 191 candidates for the UP polls, which included nominations for some of the traditional congress bastions, stirring up the conflict between the two parties.
