"I do not want to get into the arithmetic ... we are supporting the UPA government to keep the communal forces out of power and any decision on withdrawing the support would be taken by the SP president," the chief minister said.

Akhilesh, who is also state SP president, was talking to reporters on the sidelines of a function in Lucknow.

To a specific question, he said SP was always ready for elections and added that the party would enter the fray whenever they take place.
