While the new list has 16 new names for Uttar Pradesh in addition to the 11 that the party had announced last week, the party also released the names of five candidates for Maharashtra.

BSP chief Mayawati on Tuesday categorically told her party workers that "there would be no alliance with Congress in any state and in any form", thereby putting an end to speculations of a last-minute understanding with Congress. Mayawati has been clear about BSP's stand on not including Congress in UP alliance from the start.

Hitting out Congress, Mayawati said, "The SP-BSP alliance is flawless for defeating the BJP, especially in Uttar Pradesh".

JD (S) had earlier demanded that it be given 12 seats to contest.

The Congress on Wednesday declared 21 nominees in Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra including the Nagpur parliamentary constituency from where senior BJP leader Nitin Gadkari will be contesting.

In another significant development, the Congress has also announced its seat sharing deal with the JDS in Karnataka, where the two parties will be contesting together for the first time.

Responding to a question on alliance in UP, Congress' chief spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the Congress respects the decision of the SP and BSP.

Some Congress supporters see a likeness between Priyanka and her powerful grandmother Indira Gandhi, India's first female prime minister, and are banking on "Priyanka magic" to win votes.

"We are fighting the election alone and do not want an alliance". "They are desperate", he said, referring to Mayawati's party. So is Jyotiraditya Scindia, who has been put in charge of western Uttar Pradesh.

The BSP chief's statement comes on a day the Income Tax Department searched a dozen properties in Delhi and Lucknow linked to retired IAS office Net Ram, who served in top positions during Mayawati's tenure as UP chief minister, in connection with an alleged tax evasion case.
