Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has ruled out any alliance between the Aam Aadmi Party and Congress ahead of the Lok Sabha elections this year.
Speaking to India Today TV in an exclusive interview about his efforts to form an alliance with Congress in Delhi. Arvind Kejriwal said the “deal is not happening.”
Kejriwal said an alliance with the Congress was party’s compulsion to save the country.
“Had AAP and Congress come together for the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) would have been easily wiped off in Delhi in 2019. But it seems that the alliance between AAP and Congress is not happening,” Kejriwal added.
During the interview, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said he was helpless and has no option than to share the stage with Congress and other opposition parties to fight Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP.
Kejriwal said he is confident that Amit Shah and Narendra Modi are “dangerous” for the country.
The Delhi Chief Minister added that the Aam Aadmi Party will still put up a strong fight against the BJP.
Arvind Kejriwal said he is unable to understand Congress’ intentions. “The Congress is weakening the AAP in Delhi and the BSP-SP alliance in Uttar Pradesh. Same is happening with Mamata Banerjee in West Bengal,” Kejriwal added.
