New Delhi: Taking the opportunity to hit Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nitin Gadkari on Friday alleged that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Congress are together.

Gadkari, who is poll-incharge of the Delhi BJP, said that AAP is B-team of Congress and accused Delhi CM’s son Sandeep Dikshit of guiding the new political outfit.
Gadkai’s statement comes after, Dikshit yesterday ruled out any eventuality by saying that she has not ruled out an alliance with the new political outfit in the possibility of a hung Assembly in Delhi.

In an interview to an English news channel, the Delhi Chief Minister said: "Won`t comment on alliance with AAP. I didn`t rule it out, I didn`t rule it in."
However, AAP’s chief ministerial candidate Arvind Kejriwal ruled out alliance with any political party, saying AAP will not be part of an alliance under any circumstances.

Kejriwal wrote on twitter that Dikshit’s statement shows Congress has conceded defeat in the Delhi Assembly elections. AAP, which claims to clean the corrupt political system if voted to power, is itself facing corruption charges recently.

Dikshit, however, later issued a statement which said: "The Congress would form government on its own without any alliance in Delhi."

The Chief Minister has always refused to acknowledge the year-old AAP`s potential of harming the Congress` prospects of winning the Delhi polls for the fourth straight time.
