"He cannot continue to be at both the places," he added.

Yadav emerged victorious in the Lok Sabha elections from his home constituency Mainpuri, trouncing his nearest BSP rival by over three lakh votes.

Asked whether SP support to Congress at Centre was reciprocity as the Uttar Pradesh government was dependent on the former's support, he said "No. Let them withdraw support if they want to."

Singh said Congress continues to be its arch rival in Uttar Pradesh along with BJP and BSP. The ground reality for the Left parties in Kerala, West Bengal and Tripura is also similar to our situation, he added.
