Addressing the SP-Congress alliance’s first joint press conference in Lucknow on Sunday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi said the merger between the two parties was historic and it will be as an answer to the “politics of division and hate” being perpetuated by the BJP and RSS. Expressing his happiness over the alliance, Gandhi said he and SP national president Akhilesh Yadav have known each other for a long time and enjoy a close political and personal relationship. In an indirect reference to the most-recent turf war within the party, Gandhi said Akhilesh Yadav is a good leader but was not allowed to work before.
