But Akhilesh again kept his options open by saying: "Yes, if we need something during the formation of government. nobody would like the BJP to run Uttar Pradesh with a remote control under President's rule".

Akhilesh had yesterday not ruled out a post-poll tie-up with the BSP to prevent the BJP from coming to power in the state.

Meanwhile, a significant indication given by Akhilesh Yadav has surprised everyone. "Will wait and watch for results, as of now not thinking of alliance with anyone", said BSP saources as quoted by ANI.

Clearly, it will not be an easy alliance to forge, but if it is a battle of survival for Ms. Mayawati, Mr. Akhilesh Yadav also faces the prospect of his party splitting, with one faction going with uncle Shivpal Yadav, if he fails to form a government. However, the focus is on the election results of the largest state in the country which all parties want to win.

She claimed the victim was just 13-years-old, saying: "I helped her get the wound and called her father". Terrified passengers have taken to social media to say the situation inside the station "looks bad".

"I address the leader of the BSP with a respectable name (bua) and would not like to say anything beyond this as of now", he said when asked about aligning with BSP chief Mayawati. Angry SP legislators and supporters descended on the guest house on Mirabai Marg in Lucknow where Ms. Mayawati was staying and assaulted her, bringing to an end that relationship. In fact, some exit polls have even indicated a clear mandate for the BJP in Uttar Pradesh.

A poll of exit polls at 7 pm based on an average of four surveys showed the BJP getting 179 seats in UP, which has 403 assembly seats. The Times Now - VMR poll predicts the BJP will get between 190 to 210 seats, the upper end of which will get the party past the half-way mark. The India TV-CVoter exit poll also points at a hung assembly in the state as it predicted 155-167 seats for the BJP, 135-147 seats for SP-Congress, 81-93 seats for BSP and 8-20 seats for others.

Will Uttar Pradesh, which has witnessed long phases of instability and fractured mandate, be lucky this time as in the past two Assembly elections to have a clear cut victor?
