The eye balls of the two top leaders of SP and Congress have problems in seeing each other, the tainted relations may come off even after the reversals. Coalition politics is always cut short in seat sharing and at present, the Congress party is at the mercy of SP and Akhilesh Yadav to clear the stalemate. After all everything is fair in love and war and the UP election is considered to be one of the key contest in the history of independent India. The effect of demonetisation may turn the tables on BJP to muster more percentage of votes and thereby get an absolute majority in the wake of three cornered contests.
