Lucknow: In a run up to Uttar Pradesh assembly elections 2017 , Friday may be an important day as on this day, the alliance between the ruling Samajwadi Party and the Congress may be formalised and BJP is likely to declare about 150 candidates for the assembly.

The SP-Congress alliance , which is embroiled in the seat adjustments logistics, may take final shape of Friday. As per the inside reports, the SP is willing to give Congress 103 of the total of 403 UP assembly seats in UP.

Since Ajit Singh-led Rashtriya Lok Dal has distanced itself from SP or vice versa, the Congress may give some seats to RLD from its quota of 103 seats. Another announcement in this regard is expected any time from now.

The Bharatiya Janata Party has already released a list of 149 candidates for first and second phase of elections, the list of candidates for remaining phases will also be announced now. The process took more time than expected because of the rebellion in the western Uttar Pradesh over ticket distribution as the locals objected to nominate some 'outsiders' for the first phase polls.
