Lok Sabha Polls: Delhi CM Warns People Against Voting For Congress 

New Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal, the Aam Aadmi Party leader and the chief minister of National Capital,  warned people against voting for the Congress even as there is speculation that his party is in touch with the party for a tie-up for the upcoming national polls. The Delhi CM, while addressing a function in the city, also asked people not to vote for the BJP, alleging that all seven MPs of the ruling party did nothing for Delhi's development.

"Don't vote for the Congress at all, if you vote for the Congress it will strengthen Narendra Modi. Let your votes not be split and give all seven parliamentary seats to AAP," said Mr Kejriwal.

Mr Kejriwal's comments holds significance, at a time there is a buzz about an alliance in Delhi between AAP and the Congress to stop the BJP in the 2019 parliamentary elections.

Neither AAP, nor Congress have commented on the reports, which gained ground after the resignation of Ajay Maken as Delhi Congress president. Mr Maken had been strictly opposed to any truck between the Congress and AAP and had warned his leadership about Aam Aadmi Party eating into the Congress's vote-base in the capital.

Recently, Gopal Rai, the senior leader of the Aam Aadmi Party said that the party's political affairs committee would take a call on alliances, after taking into account the views of leaders and workers from Delhi, Punjab and Haryana, after January 15.

Sheila Dikshit, the former chief minister of Delhi and senior congress leader, whose three-term run in the capital ended with AAP's stunning victory in assembly polls, has said that the national leadership will decide on a tie up for 2019 and she will abide by it.

In a recent meetings the national executive of AAP, decided to contest all the seats in Delhi, Punjab, Haryana, Goa and Chandigarh, totaling 33, in the Lok Sabha elections.
