Mathura: The Samajwadi party on Sunday expressed confidence of winning the Uttar Pradesh Assembly polls due early next year, alleging that people were fed up with Chief Minister Mayawati's "corrupt regime".

"We are confident of forming the government in UP next year. People want change and they are fed up with BSP's corrupt regime," state president of Samajwadi Party, Akhilesh Yadav said here.

"Besides, people are watching Mayawati wasting public money in setting up her own statues," he added.

Slamming the BSP government for "ignoring" farmers in the district, Yadav promised that his party would give "top priority" to the agricultural sector if voted back to power.

He also ruled out joining hands with former BJP leader Kalyan Singh for the upcoming polls.
