Form government with Congress help? Kejriwal wants an SMS, phone poll

Asked if the AAP would form the government in case of a split verdict, Kejriwal said, "No we will not."

Despite talking of an alliance, Kejriwal, in the letter, targeted both the Congress and BJP. "They (Congress) have replied to us and told us that 16 issues need no support, and they will support us on the remaining two issues. But the country knows how cunning the Congress is. They will bring down the government even if I cough too much. Everyone remembers how the Congress brought down Choudhary Charan Singh and Chandrashekhar governments by their political manipulation," said the letter.

Criticising the BJP for not replying to his letter, he said, even if "Rajnath Singh was a big man, he could have told someone else to reply, just like Sonia Gandhi did... This clearly shows that the BJP is only playing dirty politics. Neither do they have the well-being of people in mind, nor do they actually want to support us on issues."

In his letter to Sonia and Rajnath on Saturday, Kejriwal had sought their parties' stand on 18 issues. The Congress had replied on Monday stating that while 16 issues were outside the ambit of the legislature, it would support the AAP on the issues of the Delhi Lokayukta Act and demand for full statehood.

"Our offer of support still stands. We have also written to the L-G about it and we will continue to support them," said Mateen Ahmad, senior Congress leader.

"We do not know why they expect a reply from us at all. We have already said that we will sit in opposition and have no problem with the AAP forming the government," said BJP spokesperson.
