While the speculation on CongressAAP alliance still resides, Rahul Gandhi expressed his open doors for the constructive alliance with parties all over the country on the sidelines of a programme organized to announce the Congress election manifesto on Tuesday afternoon.

Senior AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh said he had also been informed of the Congress president’s views through the media, and that there had been no official communication between the parties as of Tuesday afternoon to form an alliance in Delhi.

Congress president Rahul Gandhi was interacting with the media on the sidelines of a programme organized to launch the election manifesto of the Congress and said that his party was open to the alliance when asked whether there would be a tie-up with the Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi for the upcoming general elections.

“There is no confusion on this, the situation is absolutely clear on this issue. We have constructed alliances, we have been open to constructing alliances across the country and we are very flexible on the issue,” Mr. Gandhi replied to the media keeping the possibility of an alliance with AAP in speculation.

A few days back Arvind Kejriwal reported that Congress President Rahul Gandhi has refused to stitch an alliance with AAP in Delhi. The Delhi Congress President Sheila Dikshit however, has been firm on not forming the alliance with AAP as she strongly opposes AAP.

Sheila Dikshit was the three-term chief minister of Delhi until in 2014 Aam Aadmi Party government came to Delhi.

Gandhi said that the party had stitched alliances with like-minded parties in Maharashtra, Bihar, Jharkhand, Tamil Nadu, and other States across the country.

AAP leader MP Sanjay Singh had said that he proposed a 5-2 seat-sharing arrangement of Delhi, with AAP getting five seats and the Congress two.

All 7 Lok Sabha seats in Delhi will go to polls in phase six on May 12, while the results will be announced on May 23.
