AAP’s Sandeep Pathak says party wants to contest 6 LS seats in Delhi, offers 1 to Congress

The AAP on Tuesday said it wants to contest six seats in Delhi in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls and offer just one to the Congress.

The party asserted that the Congress, which is the senior INDIA bloc ally, does not even deserve even one seat considering its performance in the previous polls in the national capital.

Addressing a press conference here after Aam Aadmi Party’s political affairs committee meeting, party’s national general secretary (organisation) Sandeep Pathak said they have been waiting for more than a month for the seat sharing talks to resume for Delhi but there has been no communication (from the Congress).

“There have been two official meetings between Congress and AAP on January 8 and January 12. The talks happened in a good atmosphere but there were no results.

“Following these two official meetings, there has been no meeting in the last one month. We were told that Congress party’s (Bharat Jodo Nyay) Yatra is going on and there will be delay. We got to meet senior Congress leaders during this but even they had no idea,” he said.

The AAP and the Congress have already announced that they will go solo in Punjab in the 2024 Lok Sabha polls since their state leaders have been opposed to forging any alliance in the state.
