The Congress must help other parties even if it is too late for alliances, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav told NDTV's Prannoy Roy today. The cracks in the opposition front over Delhi, Bengal and Uttar Pradesh in full view, Mr Yadav said the Congress should follow the example of the other "big party", the BJP, and "help" regional allies who are united at the national-level. "The time has run out. It is difficult to come together. But the Congress is a big party. It must try to help the other political parties," Akhilesh Yadav told NDTV. "They must try to help Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal. In Delhi they Arvind Kejriwal can fight and they must support them. In Uttar Pradesh, we have an alliance ready, they must support us," he added.
