The political circles are abuzz with the speculation that AAP and Congress will fight 2019 Lok Sabha polls together. Background parleys are on to combine both Delhi & Punjab for the seat adjustments.
Political calculations say that together AAP+Congress can win 5/7 in Delhi and 10/13 in Punjab. This AAP+Congress combination will ensure that Narendra Modi is completely out of contest for 2019.
Rahul Gandhi does not want to leave any stone un-turned in his march towards victory in 2019 and has given signal to the Delhi & Punjab leadership to take the discussions forward.
The meeting of Rahul Gandhi and Sheila Dikshit also fanned this speculation.
Congress wants open and clear support from AAP and Arvind Kejriwal personally an endorsement for Rahul Gandhi for Prime Minister in 2019.
With Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati coming together in UP, the power seems to be shifting away from BJP and Congress does not want to take any chance. Also a categorical support from AAP for Rahul Gandhi will make him far ahead in race when compared with Mamta Bannerjee and Mayawati.
Sources tell us that current internal bickering in AAP Punjab Unit is due to the ongoing discussions on alliance with Congress.
It is understood that Navjot Singh Sidhu is working as a key link between Congress and AAP as he enjoys good rapport with Arvind Kejriwal and Rahul Gandhi both.
