Cong chief to take final call on alliance with AAP

It appears that the Congress and Aam Admi Party are not able to make up their minds on whether to contest parliamentary poll with or without alliance.

It is learnt that the Congress president Rahul Gandhi is likely to take a final decision in this regard.

The Congress and AAP had been in talks for months for the poll pact for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections but failed to reach a consensus as of now.

Earlier, AICC in-charge PC Chacko called for an alliance with AAP saying that tie-up with Kejriwal’s party was necessary to defeat the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

However, Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit has been opposing the tie-up and she also wrote to the party president warning against the alliance with Kejriwal’s party.

In a letter, Dikshit along with Rajesh Lilothia, Haroon Yusuf and Devender Yadav mentioned an internal phone survey in which the Delhi Congress leaders expressed strong reservations against a potential alliance with AAP.

Shortly after the announcement, Kejriwal took to Twitter, stating that the Congress party was extending hidden help to BJP by not forming an alliance with his party.

The seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will go to polls on May 12 and the counting of votes will be done on May 23.
