After the AAP snubbed Congress for an alliance in Delhi and three other states, the Rahul Gandhi-led party has blamed the former saying that both the parties had a pact but AAP jumped the gun and announced talks had broken down.

The AAP which has been opportunistic was seeking an alliance with the Congress not only in Delhi but also in Punjab, Goa and Haryana. However, AAP leader Sanjay Singh on April 10 gave a statement to the media saying that the alliance between the two parties is not possible.

He had said that the Congress had demanded three seats out of seven in Delhi and also said that the party did not want to share seats in Haryana, Goa and Punjab.

However, Congress PC Chako during a media on Friday briefing has blamed the AAP saying it jumped the gun by making the statement as both partied had a pact. It also said that the AAP wanted to discuss other states apart from Delhi which it was not keen about.

"We arrived at a pact but AAP wanted to also discuss other states. It is not practical to have understanding in other states other than Delhi. We arrived at a pact but AAP  made a statement day before yesterday. We are still willing for an alliance but AAP have taken an improbable position. The names will be declared in a day or two," he said.

On April 10, AAP MP Sanjay Singh spoke on the alliance with Congress saying the alliance was no longer possible.

"In Punjab, we've four MPs and 20 MLAs and Congress doesn’t want to share seats there. The same situation is in Haryana, Goa and Chandigarh. In Delhi, where they don’t have any MLA or MP, they're demanding three seats. So, this alliance is not possible. The Congress is not in favour of alliance and it seems they want to benefit the BJP. AAP will contest and win all seven seats in Delhi," he said.
