As the prospect of the AAP – Congress alliance appears slim in the capital, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has blamed Congress president Rahul Gandhi for it . He claimed that Rahul has refused to forge an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party for the Lok Sabha polls in the national capital.
Talking to reporters at the airport inVishakhanpatnam, the AAP leader said he had met Gandhi recently and the Congress leader had refused to “join hands with the AAP”.
Asked about Congress’ Delhi unit president Sheila Dikshit’s remarks that Kejriwal never approached her for an alliance, the chief minister said, “We have met Rahul Gandhi. Dikshit is not that important leader.”
Kejriwal has been urging the Congress to stitch an alliance in Delhi for the Lok Sabha polls to keep the Bharatiya Janata Party away from power.
Leaders in the Delhi unit of the Congress were divided over the issue of alliance with Dikshit and her three working presidents opposing it
