Earlier on Friday, Delhi Congress unit chief Sheila Dikshit had announced that the party will not get into an alliance with the AAP for upcoming Lok Sabha Elections. “Top leaders of the Congress held discussion over the issue of a tie-up with AAP in Delhi but most of the leaders are not in favour of an alliance with AAP. We will convey our decision to party high command,” she had said, following a meeting at her residence.
Meanwhile, the AAP in January ended months of speculation and ruled out the possibility of any alliance with the Congress for upcoming general elections. The party said that it will field candidates on all parliamentary constituencies in Delhi. The announcement came a few days after AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal reiterated that a vote for Congress in the upcoming general elections will mean victory of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
