Congress to blame if BJP returns to power: Manish Sisodia
NEW DELHI: The Congress is weakening the Opposition across the country, senior leader of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has said against the backdrop of a failed attempt at stitching a pre-poll alliance between the two parties. Manish Sisodia said the Congress should be blamed if the BJP wins in Delhi and across the country and returns to the power after the ongoing Lok Sabha polls.
"Not only in Delhi but across the country, the Congress is weakening the Opposition. If the BJP wins any seat in Delhi or outside it, the Congress should be blamed," he told IANS when asked if the AAP feels the failed alliance talks with the Congress could help the BJP in winning seats in the capital.
He said the AAP was ready for an alliance with the Congress in Delhi because it had in mind other states where seat-sharing was important to avoid division of votes. "Delhi was never the centre of our talks... We can and will win all the seven seats here. We were ready for the alliance thinking about the other states. Congress is not going to win any of the seven seats here," the AAP leader insisted.
