Majority favours Congress-AAP alliance : PC Chacko

Agency News

New Delhi, March 19: Though Congress's Delhi President Sheila Dikshit is against for an alliance with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), senior Congress leader and party's Delhi in-charge PC Chacko said a majority of Congress leaders have favoured a tie-up with AAP.

The senior leader said Congress President Rahul Gandhi will soon take a final decision on the issue of an alliance with AAP in Delhi for the Lok Sabha elections.

Chacko also requested leaders in Delhi must follow the majority wish to forge an alliance with anti-BJP parties as decided by Congress's working committee.

"As far as I know there are senior leaders in Delhi who think that defeating BJP is party's immediate responsibility; for it, we should form an alliance with AAP. That's the thinking of a majority of leaders," Chacko told news agency ANI.

The 17th Lok Sabha election in Delhi will take place on May 12 and results will be announced on May 23.
