Like the stereotypical ‘Delhi boy’ AAP supremo and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal seems to be having troubles taking no for an answer. Despite being humiliated by Congress which has rejected his proposal for an alliance in Delhi and Punjab for the upcoming general elections, Kejriwal has made another offer.
Maybe third time is the charm, but now Kejriwal has again appealed to the Congress to consider an alliance in Haryana.
देश के लोग अमित शाह और मोदी जी की जोड़ी को हराना चाहते हैं। अगर हरियाणा में JJP, AAP और कांग्रेस साथ लड़ते हैं तो हरियाणा की दसों सीटों पर भाजपा हारेगी। राहुल गांधी जी इस पर विचार करें।

In a tweet today, Kejriwal said that at a time when people of the country want to defeat Modi and Shah, if in Haryana, JJP, AAP and Congress can come together, then the BJP will lose on all the ten seats. He then appealed Congress President Rahul Gandhi to think over it. In the same breath, he said that in Delhi AAP will win all the seats without Congress and hence people need not worry about it.
Kejriwal’s inability to take no for an answer shows his desperation that he has now moved beyond expressing his affection and appealing to the Congress and started pestering Congress, begging it to agree to form an alliance.
His desperation triggered a slew of jokes and memes on the Delhi Chief Minister which left Twitter users in splits.

People even dug up his 2013 tweet where he had promised that there will be no alliance with either BJP or Congress ‘under any circumstances’.
No alliance wid either BJP or congress under any circumstances.

Former close aides also could not help but take a dig on Kejriwal who has strayed way too far from the promises he had made.
दो दिन पहले आत्ममुग्ध बौना”पूर्ण राज्य” जैसे अप्रासंगिक विषय पर @RahulGandhi को कोस रहा था, @INCIndia के दफ़्तर पर माँ-बहन करवा रहा था,आज हरियाणा के लिए फिर उसी द्वार पर “ललायित” है?बौने के ट्वीटर लिलिपुट-चिंटूओ,इस कायर-मनोरोगी की सत्तालिप्सा के लिए क्यूँ रोज़ गालीयाँ खाते हो??

Whether Rahul Gandhi will give in this time or not, only time will tell. In the meantime, we hope Kejriwal understands how consent works and no means no.
