The Trinamool Congress and the Samajwadi Party will work unitedly to fight against the BJP nationally, said Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Friday. Yadav said that his party is following a policy of maintaining distance from both the BJP and the Congress. “We share a very cordial relationship with Mamata Banerjee. Naturally, the present political situation of the country was discussed during the meeting,” he said. When asked about the role of the Congress in the opposition front, Yadav said the grand old party has to decide this on its own. “Regional parties are competent enough to decide their roles. The Congress has to decide its role. Nobody should take any step which might have any adverse impact (on fighting the BJP),” he said while adding there are several faces in the opposition camp who can become the prime minister. Earlier in the day, senior SP leader Kiranmoy Nanda had said that Mamata and Akhilesh had decided to work unitedly to fight the BJP and maintain distance from the Congress.
