Arvind Kejriwal goes public, sets terms for AAP's minority government in Delhi
In yet another first, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has now released a video wherein they have explained their position on government formation in Delhi and also tried to communicate how despite taking support from the Congress, they were determined to follow their agenda and pursue promises they made to the people of Delhi.
As the video starts, it talks about the two conflicting views over the issue of government formation – one that AAP should not align with either the Congress or the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), and the other that it should take Congress support, form government for as long as it can, and prove that it can run a government fulfilling campaign promises.
The video then refers to the survey done by the party to get a referendum on the issue of government formation. It shows a public meeting where people are asked if they want AAP to form government. It is also claimed in the video that opinion of over 26 lakh people were sought before the party decided to stake claim in Delhi.
And then, in the later part of the video, AAP explains its position as a minority government, even as it asserts that none of its promises would change despite taking Congress support. AAP also clarifies that no position would be given to any Congress candidate, and they will still act against "any previous corrupt ministers of Congress and BJP".
In the video, AAP also hit out at the BJP for their flip-flop over the issue of forming government with Congress support.
AAP further reiterates that they are not bothered about Congress or BJP, but are concerned about the aspirations of people.
The video has a voiceover of AAP convenor and CM-designate Arvind Kejriwal.
