Party (SP) chief Mulayam Singh Yadav Tuesday said the party's strategy for
government formation will be decided by the parliamentary board. He
thanked the people of Uttar Pradesh for making the SP the leading party in
the state elections even as it fell marginally short of the halfway mark
in the 403-member house.
"We will decide in the parliamentary
board what will be the strategy of the party ahead. I think we have almost
got the mandate, there's hardly anything left," Yadav told a news channel.
According to the trends available at 1.30 p.m., SP was leading by 196
seats in UP. Yadav thanked the people for bringing the party back in UP.
"I would like to congratulate the people of Uttar Pradesh who have brought
Samajwadi Party back. The hope with which they have supported us, we will
meet their expectations," a confidant Yadav said.
