It seems like hopes and deliberations to forge an alliance in Delhi is still on for the Lok Sabha Polls 2019. In a quick turn of events Delhi unit of Congress has now decided to seek the inputs of its booth-level workers whether to go for an alliance with Arvind Kejriwal-led party in the national Capital to take on Bhartiya Janta Party.

It came days after DPCC Chief Sheila Dixit and Congress President Rahul Gandhi formally declined AAP‘s proposal to go ‘Together’ in Delhi in all 7 seats.

Leaders said that the party is planning to reach its workers via an automated call asking them to press keys with yes or no. The automated call will ask its thousands of workers whether Congress should forge an alliance in Delhi. An automated call will be made on behalf of PC Chacko, Delhi In-Charge. On receiving the calls, a caller will hear, “I am PC Chacko. In-charge of Delhi Congress. Should the Congress and AAP form an alliance, to defeat the BJP? Press 1 for Yes, 2 for No.”

The party has planned to reach out at least 52,000 booth workers in its new exercise. Speaking to the Times of India, PC Chacko said that we had taken opinions from Top Brasses including DPCC Chief, Congress Chief and Others, now we want to take opinions from workers now.
