New Delhi. During a press conference held on Tuesday, it was confirmed that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress will contest the elections separately in Punjab, while in the national capital Delhi, the Arvind Kejriwal-led party will give one seat to Congress out of the total 7 seats. Preparation is underway. This was confirmed by AAP MP Sandeep Pathak. During the press conference, it was also mentioned that Aam Aadmi Party will contest elections independently on 6 out of 7 seats in Delhi and will support Congress on only one seat. During this, Pathak also said that he wants to fulfill the duty of the alliance, but delay is not acceptable.
Apart from this, candidates were announced in Goa and Gujarat. Pathak said that there are two seats in Goa and in view of the alliance with Congress, he is declaring candidates on one seat. Their MLA from South Goa, Venagankar, will be declared candidate for the Lok Sabha elections. Regarding Gujarat, Pathak said that the alliance has 8 seats and hence they are declaring Chaitra Basava from Bharuch and Umesh Bhai Makhwana as candidates from Bhavnagar. He believes that Congress will support this demand.
Pathak emphasized that AAP has the government in Delhi and also in the Municipal Corporation. If we look at it accordingly, he is entitled to 6 seats in Delhi. Therefore, he wants to contest elections on 6 seats and is ready to give one seat to Congress.
Pathak also took a dig at Congress and said that when India Alliance was announced, there was enthusiasm in the country. The purpose of the alliance was to work for the interest of the country rather than just the interests of the opposition parties. AAP joined the alliance for the same reason, with the goal of contesting and winning the elections. He had two meetings with Congress, but no concrete results emerged. After that, not a single meeting has taken place in the last one month. Initially the reason for this was said to be Nyaya Yatra, but after that nothing was told. No Congress leader is aware of when the meeting will take place. Today he feels compelled to speak loudly.
