New Delhi, Jan 29 : After days of differences on various issues including newly enacted Citizenship law, BJP and one of its oldest allies seemed to have buried their differences and agreed to work together during ensuing Delhi elections.

"Akali Dal has been always with us, it has always come forward and teamed up with the BJP in the service of the nation. Today also, I am glad to state that Akali Dal has decided to support BJP in the Delhi elections," BJP national president J P Nadda told reporters here. Akali Dal chief Sukhbir Singh Badal was also present on the occasion.

"This is the oldest alliance between BJP and Akali Dal and strongest alliance," he remarked. A few days back, however, Delhi Akali leaders had stated that the party is staying away from polls over differences with the saffron outfit. "I am thankful for their decision," he said. (UNI)
