New Delhi: Congress Delhi president Arvinder Singh Lovely on Friday said that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) got the votes by talking bad things about his party and it should not test its patience.

Talking to the media, Lovely said that AAP got the numbers because of promises made in its manifesto and talking bad about the Congress.

Commenting on the deadlock in Delhi over government formation, the Congress leader said that the Congress has offered outside support to the Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP as the grand old party wants the Delhiites to get the benefits proposed in AAP’s manifesto.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which ended as the single largest party with 31 seats in the 70-member house, declined to form a government. The AAP, with 28 seats, was invited next but sought time to give its reply.

The routed Congress, left with just eight seats, offered outside support to the AAP.

The AAP on Tuesday said it will take a final decision on government formation Dec 23, after seeking public opinion in the capital until the weekend.
