Apart from this deliberation on the future role of the party on the floor of House may also happen," SP spokesperson Rajendra Chaudhary told reporters here.

In the recently-held UP assembly elections, Samajwadi Party and Congress contested together. The Samajwadi Party's seats tally came down to 47 from 224 in 2012, while Congress managed to bag only seven seats down from 28 seats held by them in 2012.
