‘Tired of trying to convince’: Arvind Kejriwal pleads Congress to join hands with AAP in Delhi

The coming together of Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party has also irked the senior leaders of both the party.

Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday pleaded with the Congress party to join hands with the AAP to defeat the BJP in all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi. He claimed if the Congress agrees to the alliance offer, the Bharatiya Janata Party will lose all the seven Lok Sabha seats in Delhi.

Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal stated that he was tired of trying to convince Congress party of an alliance and said that Congress party has refused to have an alliance with his Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi for Lok Sabha elections indicating at the desperation of the AAP to join hands with the Congress party ahead of the crucial elections.

“Tired of trying to convince Congress for alliance but they refuse to understand…If today our alliance with Congress is done, the BJP will lose all seven seats in Delhi,” said Kejriwal as saying at a public function in Chandni Chowk parliamentary constituency.

“There should be only one candidate against every BJP candidate. Votes must not be divided,” said Kejriwal, according to ANI.

Reportedly, the Congress party has been trying to strengthen its organisation in Delhi, where it had a government for three successive terms between 1998 and 2013. However, the AAP has been pushing for an alliance with the Congress party in Delhi to get few seats in the Lok Sabha elections to stay relevant in the national politics.

Earlier, Former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dixit had hinted about not joining hands with the AAP and had said that there was no question of aligning with them after what they have done to the Congress. She had further said that Congress must stay away from any alliance and fight on its own.

The coming together of Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party has also irked the senior leaders of both the party. Recently, senior Congress leader Ajay Maken had resigned as the party president after he had supposedly objected to any such pre-poll alliance between the Congress and the AAP. Similarly, HS Phoolka, a senior AAP leader had resigned after he knew that there were serious talks of AAP-Congress alliance ahead of the Lok Sabha polls.
