The Rashtriya Lok Dal, a part of an opposition alliance in Uttar Pradesh, has demanded to field candidates in six seats, a senior party leader said Wednesday.
Currently Kairana is represented by RLD's Tabassum Hasan, who won a by-election from the seat with support from the Samajwadi Party and Mayawati's BSP.
In the 2014 Lok Sabha elections, the RLD failed to win a single seat and polled only 0.86 per cent votes.
In the 2017 UP state elections, the RLD won only one seat out of the 277 it contested, and got 2.59 per cent votes.
Uttar Pradesh Assembly has 403 members.
Yesterday, Jayant Chaudhary met Akhilesh at the SP headquarters here and the two spoke for over an hour.
"We discussed present politics and future course of action and also about BJP's failures," Chaudhary had said, without elaborating.
