Former BJP president Rajnath Singh on Tuesday ruled out truck with any party for forming government in Uttar Pradesh.

“There is no question of going with any party in Uttar Pradesh to form an alliance,” Mr. Singh told PTI on phone.

All the senior leaders of the party have been saying so all through and we will not give or take support in Uttar Pradesh, Mr. Singh said when asked whether his party could help BSP in government formation.

He, however, said that no party appears to be getting clear majority and stressed that Congress should not make any attempt to impose President’s rule in UP.

The former BJP president expressed satisfaction over the party’s performance in Punjab and Uttarakhand.
