Aam Aadmi Party is famous for mocking itself for its immature decisions, and it has proved it is rightly famous so. After a month of requesting Congress to make an alliance in Delhi, then bad mouthing them, then requesting them to make an alliance in Haryana, they are now saying that they will not make an alliance with Congress in Delhi.
In a press conference, a senior AAP leader said that it is “late now” for talks to make an alliance in Delhi. He was hinting at Congress questioning its workers to make an alliance with AAP or not.
The dates have been announced by Election Commission. Voting will be held across India in seven phases on April 11, April 18, April 23, April 29, May 6, May 12 and May 19. Lok Sabha election 2019 result will be declared on May 23.
AAP is planning to run the elections on the issue of granting Delhi a full statehood. AAP leaders questioned the stand of BJP on the issue. They said that BJP should clear it in its manifesto.
AAP is saying that BJP is having a contradictory position on giving Delhi a full statehood. Union Minister, earlier, has said that Delhi will surely be given a full statehood, but not with Kejriwal as its Chief Minister. While Manoj Tiwari is having a different stand.
"What is BJP's official stand on granting full statehood to Delhi. We want an answer to that. On one hand, Tiwari says it will not be granted to Delhi while Goel says full statehood would not be given as long as Kejriwal is the chief minister," said Gopal Rai.
The leader also cleared its current stand on making the alliance with Congress in Delhi.
“There is a very big challenge in front of the country and it is late now (for an alliance). After the official statement of the Congress, AAP thought if Congress is moving towards helping BJP, we need to stop the BJP and based on that we announced our candidates and launched our campaign following that.
So, AAP has moved ahead with the agenda of full statehood and alliance is not an agenda for the AAP.”
Now, this may be received as the last decision of the party on making the alliance. Because it has already announced 6 candidates out of 7 seats, hence there is no way to take a U-turn.
