Congress, AAP 'mutually agreed' to contest Punjab Lok Sabha seats separately: Arvind Kejriwal

PTC News Desk: There is no animosity between the Congress and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and both parties had "mutually agreed" to contest Lok Sabha seats in Punjab separately, according to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.

Kejriwal had lunch today at the home of Congress leader and renowned lawyer Abhishek Singhvi. Speaking to reporters about the AAP and Congress' decision to go solo in Punjab, he stated, "In Punjab, Congress and AAP have mutually agreed to contest the elections separately. There is no animosity regarding this." 


The feud between the Congress and the AAP, rivals in Punjab but allies in the INDIA Opposition bloc, has dominated headlines for weeks. 

Kejriwal stated that the AAP is in talks with the Congress to finalise seat-sharing in Delhi. "We are in talks with the Congress about forming an alliance in Delhi. We're discussing seat-sharing arrangements. If there is no alliance (between Congress and AAP), the BJP will have an advantage," he said.

The BJP won all seven parliamentary seats in the national capital during the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. They accomplished the same feat in 2014. 

Kejriwal's remark suggests that the INDIA allies have decided to strike a balance between their national goal of defeating the BJP and their regional goal of maintaining their strongholds.
