'Last chance for Congress': Aam Aadmi Party postpones Delhi Lok Sabha nominations
New Delhi : With hopes of going into an alliance with Congress in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Paty on Friday postponed the nomination of its candidates, senior party leader Gopal Rai said.
While making the announcement, he said that the decision has been taken with a view 'to save the nation from Modi-Shah duo'.
On Saturday, AAP’s East Delhi candidate Atishi, Chandini Chowk candidate Pankaj Gupta and North West candidate Guhan Singh were to file their nominations.
"But to give a last chance to the Congress to come on the table for holding talks over the alliance, we are postponing these candidates’ nominations from Saturday to Monday," Rai said.
The candidates will file their nominations on Monday.
According to sources quoted by a report in Hindustan Times, AAP leader Sanjay Singh has proposed to the Congress that the party would not field its candidate from Chandigarh and give the grand old party outside support in the Union Territory, if an alliance is formed in Delhi with the 5:2 seat-sharing formula, five for the AAP and two for Congress.
