Kapil Mishra, the rebel MLA of the Aam Aadmi Party in the Delhi assembly, has alleged that party supremo Arvind Kejriwal will ally with the Congress party for the Lok Sabha elections next year. As part of the deal, AAP will not field any candidates in Punjab. He also said that the Delhi Chief Minister wants to end the party unit in the state.
AAP to form alliance with Congress for Loksabha
First condition – AAP will not contest election in Punjab
Cong may give 2 seats to AAP in Delhi, Kejriwal bargaining for 3 seats in Delhi
Kejriwal now want to end AAP in Punjab , AAP Punjab unit is a burden for Kejriwal

During his early days in politics, Arvind Kejriwal had stated on several occasions that he will not ally with either the Congress or the BJP. However, it certainly won’t be the first time he takes a u-turn if indeed he does go on to ally with the Congress for the General Elections next year. Earlier Arvind Kejriwal had sworn by his children that he will never tie-up with the Congress or the BJP before forming he government in Delhi with Congress’ support.
No alliance wid either BJP or congress under any circumstances.

Yesterday, after Arvind Kejriwal’s unconditional apology to Bikram Singh Mathijia of Shiromani Akali Dal, Bhagwant Man resigned as the President of the party’s state unit in Punjab.
Times of India also reported on Saturday that a majority of AAP MLAs in Punjab were in favour of parting ways with the party, but had not yet decided to split due to a lack of consensus.
Kapil Mishra’s allegation of Kejriwal’s desire to shut down the Punjab unit of the Aam Aadmi Party might materialize after all if the members of its Punjab unit reach a consensus on the matter of quitting the party.
