Kolkata: Samajwadi Party supremo Akhilesh Yadav on Friday called on West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee at her residence here and held a meeting.

Yadav, a former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, was accompanied by SP national vice-president Kiranmoy Nanda.

The meeting is still on.

“Hon'ble President of @samajwadiparty Shri @yadavakhilesh called on our Hon'ble Chairperson Smt @MamataOfficial today, in Kolkata,” the TMC tweeted.

Yadav had earlier said that SP would stand firmly with Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee to defeat the saffron camp.

"In Bengal, we are with Mamata didi. Right now, our stand is we want to maintain equidistance from both the BJP and the Congress" he said while talking to reporters on the sidelines of his party's workers' meet.

Earlier while speaking at the workers' meeting, the SP chief lauded Banerjee for defeating the BJP in the West Bengal Assembly election in 2021.

"The Samajwadi Party is ready to make any sacrifice to protect our Constitution. If we can defeat the BJP in Uttar Pradesh, the BJP can be defeated across the country, " he said.

Yadav slammed the BJP-led union government for allegedly selling out the country's assets to foreign powers and private players.

Yadav had lent his party's support to the TMC during the 2021 West Bengal assembly poll, which was reciprocated by Banerjee when she campaigned for the former in Uttar Pradesh during the 2022 election in that state.
