Congress on Friday welcomed the tendering of apology to the Muslim community by Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav for having aligned with Kalyan Singh but ruled out any allinace with that party in Uttar Pradesh assembly elections.

"Apology is always welcome...but there is no question of any alliance in the assembly elections of UP," Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh, who is in-charge of party affairs in the state, told reporters.

To a reported suggestion by SP leader Mohan Singh that there should be a softening of relationship between Congress and SP, the AICC leader remarked" where is the hardening?"

In an attempt to mend fences with Muslims after having aligned with Kalyan Singh during Lok Sabha polls in 2009, Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday regretted taking support of those "responsible" for the Babri mosque demolition and sought pardon of the community.
