Sanjay Singh, national spokesperson and Rajya Sabha Member of Parliament of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), on Tuesday, called upon Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh.
Sanjay Singh said that he discussed the strategy to be followed after the results of the general elections would be announced on May 23. He also said that it was a courtesy call.
“Results will be declared after two days. We met to discuss the strategy to be followed after that. The first priority is to stop the BJP, the pair of Narendra Modi and Amit Shah and the communal forces. This was also a courtesy call,” said Singh.
Sanjay Singh expressed confidence that the UP gathbandhan (the alliance of SP-BSP) would emerge victorious on more than 60 seats of the total 80 seats in the state and the exit polls would be proved wholly wrong.
“I feel that the gathbandhan (the SP-BSP alliance) will get more than 60 seats in UP. BJP will be wiped off across the country. Exit polls will prove to be completely false like it had happened before. The opposition will form a strong government at the centre,” said Singh.
The former Uttar Pradesh chief minister had a telephonic conversation with Delhi Chief Minister and the national convener of the AAP, Arvind Kejriwal, tweeted Sanjay Singh.

It is worth mentioning that SP chief Akhilesh Yadav had called upon his alliance partner and BSP supremo Mayawati at her residence in Lucknow on Monday late evening to discuss the further course of action following the exit polls projections.
The seventh and final phase of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections concluded on May 19. Most exit polls, conducted by different organizations, have given the BJP-led NDA a full majority with some of them projecting that the BJP-led NDA would get over 300 seats to comfortably cross the majority mark of 272 in the 17th Lok Sabha.
All eyes are now set on May 23 when the final results would be declared.
