New Delhi: The Congress on Friday said that it has decided to go alone in the Lok Sabha elections in Delhi after talks of an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party failed over the latter’s “impractical” demand of seeking an alliance in Haryana too.

“We are compelled to fight on our own and fight alone in Delhi,” the party’s general secrertary in-charge of Delhi, P.C. Chacko, told the media.

He said that while the party was ready for an alliance in Delhi and had agreed to the formula of a 4:3 arrangement going by the vote share the two parties had, the situation was different in states like Haryana.  

AAP leader Gopal Rai said on Friday that his is capable of defeating both the BJP and the Congress in Delhi and an alliance is possible with the Congress only when it will be done on 33 Lok Sabha seats.

The AAP wants the alliance to extend to Haryana and Punjab as well.
