No Congress-AAP pact, Delhi to see triangular contest

No Congress-AAP pact, Delhi to see triangular contest

New Delhi: Delhi is set for a triangular fight with the AAP on Saturday announcing alliance is not possible with the Congress as the latter wants the tie-up to remain confined to the national capital and not extending to Haryana. While the AAP has already declared its list of seven candidates, the Congress is in the process of finalising its candi­da­tes.

The BJP is also yet to come out with its list and is apparently wait­ing for the final denouement of talks between the AAP and the Cong. However, both Congress and BJP are expected to declare their candida­tes by Monday. The Congress was agreeable on a formula according to which the party would have fought 3 of the 7 seats and 4 would have gone to the AAP. However, the AAP was also keen to have an alliance in Haryana which the Congress rejected. The failure of the AAP and the Congress to stitch an alliance could give some advantage to the BJP.
