Similarly, Akhilesh Yadav is also unhappy with the attitude of the Congress leaders who want to hand over TMC's elected government to the President's rule. Chief Minister Mamata has further increased the controversy by not allowing Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. The INDIA alliance that we had is now tattered and is headed towards its decline."
