New Delhi: As the possibility of an alliance in Delhi with the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections continues to carry rise and dip with twists surfacing each day, the Congress has asked Delhi unit workers their view over the issue through an audio clip released on its mobile app, Shakti.
While interacting with media, Senior Congress leader Ajay Maken shared his support about the survey conducted by the party. He said, “who’d oppose the workers referendum the workers view, if workers are being asked whether we want to enter an alliance or not, isn’t it a welcome step?So when workers are demanding, I think this is the best thing for the internal democracy of the party”. He further added, “this is something Kejriwal used to say, during his time, which he has not followed, but the Congress is following and is a good welcome step.”
In the audio clip, that has been released by the Congress party. AICC in-charge PC Chacko can be heard asking party workers in Delhi about their views on an alliance with the AAP.
Earlier, on March 5, the Congress had ruled out aligning with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) for the Lok Sabha elections. The decision was taken at a meeting of Delhi Congress unit led by its chief Sheila Dikshit and Congress President Rahul Gandhi at his residence here. “The Congress unanimously has taken a decision that there will be no alliance with AAP. The decision was taken in Rahul Gandhi’s presence and it is final,” said Dikshit.
Citing health reasons, Maken had resigned from the post of Delhi’s Congress Chief in early January this year.
