Uttar Pradesh's ruling Samajwadi Party on Thursday walked out of the anti-BJP coalition in Bihar and said it will contest the assembly election in the state on its own.

Samajwadi Party general secretary Ram Gopal Yadav told reporters here that the "grand coalition" had humiliated his party by giving it just five of the 243 seats.

He said the Mulayam Singh Yadav-led Samajwadi Party would contest the upcoming Bihar polls "with all its might" and would talk to other parties as well.
