On Sunday, Aam Aadmi Party blamed the Congress for unsuccessful alliance talks between both the parties. They claimed a hard trial for the alliance but the Congress ‘backtracked’.
“We tried very hard to forge an alliance with the Congress. We were ready to accept their every demand for Haryana and Punjab, but still, they backtracked. We cannot do anything more, the talks of alliancewith Congress are over. We know, this will help BJP, but we simply don’t have any choice left,” said AAP leader Gopal Rai at a press conference here.
“By dividing votes of the opposition, like in Uttar Pradesh and other states too, the Congress wants to benefit BJP. Despite our best intentions, Congress has gone back to its old ways and seeking to snatch some votes from us in Delhi. But, the voters have now realized their tricks and will ensure their total wipeout from Delhi,” Rai said.
The Deputy CM of Delhi, Manish Sisodia signalled that the Congress’ stance on seat sharing was making the possibility of an alliance ‘hopeless’.
Congress leader PC Chako also had said that the alliance talks weren’t fruitful between the two parties.
After failing to convince the Congress to enter into an alliance, AAP will fight in Delhi on its own. However, it has entered into a coalition with Jannayak Janta Party (JJP) for elections in Haryana.
