Tie-up set to be announced? RLD chief posts pic with Akhilesh Yadav

NEW DELHI: Lending credence to the buzz that the Samajwadi Party and the Rashtriya Lok Dal are set to announce an electoral tie-up before the assembly polls, Jayant Chaudhary, chief of the western UP based party, on Tuesday posted a picture of himself along with Akhilesh Yadav.
Chaudhary, whose party holds clout in districts where Jats have a substantial presence, could help the Samajwadi Party muster support among people of the agrarian community.
Yadav has been keen on tie-ups with smaller parties after his previous alliances with the Congress in assembly polls and the BSP during the Lok Sabha elections proved to be unsuccessful.
Chaudhary did not make a statement along with his picture with Yadav but merely captioned it ‘badhte kadam, or advancing footsteps in Hindi.

Rashtriya Lok Dal (RLD) president Chaudhary had on November 19 hinted at forming an alliance with Samajwadi Party in the state. According to newsagency ANI, he said, “By this month-end, we (RLD & Samajwadi Party) will take the decision and will come together.”
Significantly, this is not the first time in recent days that a photo on social media has been used to convey a political message in this UP elections.
Uttar Pradesh chief minister Yogi Adityanath had tweeted pictures of himself with Prime Minister Narendra Modi only days earlier.

The photographs which went viral were widely seen as a message of the prime minister and the BJP extending complete support to Adityanath. Political opponents had in the past tried to cast aspersions that the chief minister was not on the same page as BJP’s central leadership on various issues.
