The Samajwadi Party (SP) and Congress have partnered up ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, with the Congress contesting on 17 seats, while SP and other parties of the INDIA bloc contesting on the remaining 63 Lok Sabha seats in Uttar Pradesh.

But will this alliance be able to put up a tough fight against the Bharatiya Janata Party-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) that holds over 60 seats in the state?

Meanwhile, amid reports of cross voting, Rajya Sabha election results for three states (15 seats) – Uttar Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh and Karnataka – are out.

While the Congress managed to win three out of four seats in Karnataka, the BJP got the remaining one seat. In UP, the BJP bagged eight out of 10 seats, whereas the SP won the remaining seats.

But what wrong for the grand old party in the state?

In our weekly special 'Elections 2024 with Faye and Aditya' leading up to the crucial Lok Sabha polls, Faye D'Souza and Aditya Menon sit down to delve deeper into the Rajya Sabha election results and SP-Congress alliance in Uttar Pradesh.
