New Delhi: The Congress’s Delhi unit on Saturday ruled out the possibility of forming any alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), a day after leaders of the two parties made claims and counterclaims over soliciting a possible seat-sharing arrangement in the Lok Sabha polls.
“The Congress workers and leaders are not in favour of any alliance with the AAP,” Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ajay Maken said.
He said that no party worker or leader wants any alliance with the AAP at a time when the graph of the Kejriwal government is “declining fast” and that of the Congress “going up”.
“All leaders and workers of the Congress in Delhi do not want any alliance with Kejriwal party due to two reasons. First, the popularity of Kejriwal is fast declining as his government is not working. The other reason is that the AAP is responsible for creating the monster of Modi,” Maken said.
The talks about possibility of an alliance between the two parties began yesterday with Maken and AAP leader Dilip Pandey taking to Twitter to make claims and counterclaims about who approached whom.
“The people of Delhi are rejecting the AAP on issues of power, water and education. The Congress workers and leaders feel there is no reason to support them,” he said....
