Forming an alliance in Delhi alone would not solve the problem,” he said. “We are still saying that an alliance can be formed (with Congress) in Haryana, Delhi and Chandigarh if they are ready, but an alliance alone in Delhi cannot be done,” he added.

Sisodia said that PM Modi and the BJP boss Amit Shah were proving dangerous for the country and AAP would try its best to stop both of them. He said that Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led party was of the view to forming joint opposition against the BJP. He said that AAP was ready to bury the hatchet and forge an alliance with the Congress to stop BJP from coming to power at the Centre. The uncertainty over the alliance between the AAP and the Congress has continued for weeks now. The talks between the two sides derailed after they failed to reach an agreement over seat-sharing in Delhi and Haryana. Congress’ in-charge for Delhi P C Chacko on Friday said Congress will go alone in Delhi since the AAP has taken an “impractical stand”. He, however, said, “We are still ready (for alliance) if AAP is willing to have an alliance in Delhi alone. We want to fight the BJP together.”last_img
