New Delhi: Shunning the idea of a triangular fight in the national capital for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Congress in-charge of Delhi affairs P.C. Chacko said on Thursday that they are head-on with only Bharatiya Janata Party and that there is no third party in the race.

He maintained that the so-called aura of the third party is gradually fading in Delhi.

He alleged that Aam Aadmi Party supremo Arvind Kejriwal was not serious in defeating BJP, rather had high political ambitions.

Commenting on the AAP-Congress alliance, he claimed, “It is now a closed chapter as we doubt about Kejriwal’s intentions. It is impossible to get them in confidence as they recoiled without any reason, which is why we still have doubt about him being serious in defeating BJP. The fight is between Rahul Gandhi and Narendra Modi at pan India level, which will get us anti-BJP votes.”

DPCC president Sheila Dikshit, who is quite confident about winning all the seven seats, said, “Rahul Gandhi has reposed faith in all the seven candidates. We will surely seek the votes and support on the basis of our party’s solid track record and for the unsurpassed development of the national capital.”

The voting in Delhi will take place on May 12 for which Congress has fielded former chief minister Sheila Dikshit from Northeast Delhi, boxer-turned politician Vijender Singh from South, Rajesh Lelothia from Northwest, Jai Prakash Agarwal from Chandi Chowk, Arvind Singh Lovely from East Delhi, and Mahabal Mishra from West Delhi.
