New Delhi: Former police officer Kiran Bedi said on Sunday that she was not sure as to how long the alliance between the Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress would last.

As per a news agency, Bedi said, “I don`t know how long this alliance will last.” adding, “I have my doubts as a voter from Delhi.”

She also said that the people did not vote so that the two parties would go at each others throats. “We didn`t want a war of allegation,” Bedi said.

Further taking a dig at the prevailing situation in Delhi over government formation, the former cop said, “It seems like the devil and the deep sea relationship.” “We want governance, not attack and defence,” Bedi added.
The Aam Aadmi Party is seeking a referendum from the people of Delhi to know if they should take Congress` support and form the government in Delhi. AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal has said that if the people want then they will go ahead and form the government in Delhi.

He had said earlier that though he was personally against any truck with the Congress or the BJP, a section of his party MLAs wanted to form the government. The AAP will announce its decision tomorrow.
Delhi threw up a fractured mandate in the recently concluded Assembly elections, the results for which were counted on December 08. The BJP emerged as the single largest party with 31 seats while SAD won one seat. The AAP surprised everyone by bagging 28 seats, with the Congress reduced to 08 seats.

After the results, the Congress offered unconditional support to the AAP to form the government. Meanwhile, the BJP told the LG that they could not prove majority on the floor of the House.
