As the Exit Polls have started to roll out for the five states that concluded polling for Assembly Elections just a day ago, Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Thursday said that he is ready for ‘tie-up with BSP’ in case of hung assembly.

“No one wants President's rule in the state, so that BJP runs the government with a remote control, UP CM Akhilesh Yadav told BBC. However, BSP said that it would like to wait for the final results.

Akhilesh Yadav had addressed a total of 211 rallies which is maximum for a political leader. However, Congress Vice President Rahul Gandhi got second spot with 55 rallies. BSP supremo Mayawati has addressed 51 rallies for UP assembly elections.
