Prime News, National (New Delhi), September 3:- The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will not ally with the Congress in the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Gopal Rai, a cabinet minister in the Delhi government, has said, adding that being a part of a post-poll Grand Alliance will depend on the manner in which the electorate votes.
“No,” the Delhi State Convenor of the party snapped when asked during an interview with IANS whether there was any chance of an AAP-Congress alliance for the polls.
He said his party aimed to end the dictatorship of the BJP, which created hurdles in the development work of the Delhi government and made the national capital suffer.
“There is no ‘Mahagathbandhan’ (Grand Alliance) before the elections. There will be one post elections and being its part or not will depend totally on the situation. Our aim is very clear, we want the Modi government to go. We will do all we can to remove the BJP government,” he said.
“We want an end to the dictatorship of the BJP. It has destroyed Delhi. Not helping us in our work is one thing. But they have created hurdles in our work. So, the favourable thing for Delhi will be that BJP should go.”
The party will focus on Delhi, Haryana and Punjab during the 2019 elections.
“We will work hard on the seats where we have a winning trend.”
The AAP is also focusing on the September 12 Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls and towards this end, its Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) student’s wing has joined hands with the left-wing All India Students’ Association (AISA). (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
