“If BJP comes back to power, only Rahul Gandhi will be responsible”: Arvind Kejriwal shows frustration of failed alliance talks

Kejriwal furthered that it was the Congress which backtracked every time. He claimed that AAP agreed every time the Congress came up with a proposal but at the last moment, Congress backtracked and said there could be no alliance anywhere except Delhi

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal tore into Rahul Gandhi today for failing to form an alliance in the state, even after repeated efforts of the Aam Aadmi Party.

At the launch of his party’s manifesto, Arvind Kejriwal vented his frustration by slamming the Congress President saying “I can say that we tried our best to form an alliance with Congress and if the BJP comes back to power, only one person would be responsible for it and that would be Rahul Gandhi,” he said.

Kejriwal further added that he took the decision of forming an alliance with the Congress to ‘save the country’, otherwise AAP would not have ‘dreamt’ of an alliance.

Kejriwal stormed at Rahul Gandhi asking him which alliance is formed on Twitter.

“I want to ask Rahul Gandhi which alliance is formed on Twitter. If they were serious about forming an alliance they should have come to the table for negotiations. Giving statements in public is not going to solve the problem,” he said.

Rahul had taken to Twitter to talk about the seat-sharing proposal with the AAP.

To this Kejriwal said, giving three seats to Congress would mean losing all those seats.

“Congress cannot win in Delhi. If Congress was in a position to win Delhi then I was ready to leave all seven seats for Congress but an alliance of 4:3 with Congress would be with like forming an alliance with BJP.

“My conscience does not allow me to give three seats to BJP,” Kejriwal said.

He claimed that it was the Congress which backtracked every time. The AAP supremo claimed that AAP agreed every time the Congress came up with a proposal but at the last moment, Congress backtracked and said there could be no alliance anywhere except Delhi.

“They used to come out with some conditions on seat sharing, we used to agree to conditions then they would backtrack”, said Kejriwal.

“(Senior AAP leader) Sanjay Singh was called last Tuesday by Ghulam Nabi Azad and they agreed on alliance on 18 seats but the next morning we kept waiting, kept calling and in the evening the Congress again changed their conditions in Haryana, Chandigarh and Delhi,” he said, claiming  his party again agreed to a seat-sharing arrangement proposed by them but then the next day they again said that the alliance can be done only in Delhi.

“They put out conditions which were very difficult for me,” he said, furthering that the seven seats of Delhi this time would make a difference in the formation of the government.

Kejriwal, seeming quite miffed by Rahul’s proposal further trained his guns at the Congress party saying that Congress is not getting a single Hindu vote while the Muslims are also slightly confused.

“Congress is trying to weaken the opposition in different states – whether it is Kerala, Haryana, Goa West Bengal or UP, but I hope people from all religions who want to save the country would unite and vote for the AAP,” he said.

Kejriwal’s desperation to form an alliance with the Congress has left him completely flustered. Kejriwal, who was not being able to digest a no for an answer moved beyond expressing his affection and appealing to the Congress and started pestering Congress, begging it to agree to form an alliance.

Probably this rejection forced Kejriwal to move into the oblivion for all this while. He made an appearance after a relatively long time at the launch of his party’s manifesto for the ongoing Lok Sabha elections which vowed to stop Modi-Shah duo at the centre.
