Congress Leaders Abhishek Manu Singhvi and Kapil Sibal were also present in the joint presser of the Opposition parties. Sibal responding to the question said, ‘He (Kejriwal) knows better, while Singhvi reportedly said ‘Congress stand is clear, all of you know that. We were always ready for the alliance in Delhi, but stretching it to other states (Punjab, Haryana and Goa) is not right.
Earlier on Friday, Delhi State In-Charge PC Chacko talking about the possibilities of Alliance with AAP said, ‘AAP wanted to have an alliance in other states also which is not practical. Every state is different; we will announce the seats tomorrow or day after tomorrow. If they are ready for an alliance in Delhi with Congress, we are ready even today’.
The recent development and comments from both the parties came days after a fresh round of deliberations remained inconclusive. It was claimed that AAP wanted seats in Punjab and Haryana too that irked Congress. The same reason that forced AAP not to drag alliance talks more.
AAP in a run-up to the mega polls 2019 has already announced candidates on all seven seats of Delhi and many Candidates in Punjab also. While the party also announced its poll tie-up with Dushyant Chautala’s Jannayak Janata Party (JJP).
Polling on all seven seats of Delhi will be held in a single phase of May 12, the sixth phase of voting.
