New Delhi: Ahead of the crucial Delhi Assembly election, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday ruled out alliance with any political party, saying AAP will not form alliance under any circumstances. Kejriwal wrote on the micro-blogging site Twitter, “No alliance with either BJP or congress under any circumstances.”
While Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today had said that she has not ruled out any possibility of an alliance with AAP, Kejriwal reacted to Dikshit’s comment on keeping alliance option open saying that if there is any need of alliance then let both Congress and BJP form it.
Sheila says ki unke darwaze sabke liye khule hain. Then let Cong and BJP form alliance, if there is any such need

Taking a jibe at Sheila, Kejriwal further wrote on twitter that her 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.
Web portal `mediasarkar.com` which conducted a sting operation on Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) candidates filed a criminal defamation case against party leader Arvind Kejriwal and four others.
Also, after Kejriwal had given clean chit to its party member shown in the sting operation allegedly accepting money without proper document, the Election Commission on Wednesday said that no clean chit has been given to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in sting operation.
