New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal said that his party was preparing to contest alone in New Delhi in the upcoming general elections as Congress has closed doors on alliance.

"They (Congress) have refused to go for a gatbandhan (alliance). It appears they are firm," Arvind Kejriwal said.

 

After Kejriwal’s comment, Congress’s Delhi chief Sheila Dikshit said that no such talks had taken place.

Kejriwal said that despite bitter rivalry, he was in favour of an alliance with Congress to tackle the “biggest challenge” to the country. He was referring to “remove PM Modi-Amit Shah duo from power”.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah, he continued, "have destroyed the economy, caused an environment of hate and weakened the country's unity in a way Pakistan couldn't in 70 years. To stop them, we will do anything. We don't have any love for the Congress."

"What is the Congress intending? They are weakening the opposition in Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal...But in Delhi, we are confident that AAP will win all seven seats," AAP supremo said.
