Suspense reigns over Congress and Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) alliance in the national capital, as Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit on Sunday further fueled speculations, saying her party will soon make an official announcement in this regard.
"In some time the things will be clear. You will get to know about it in a matter of a few hours, by this evening or by tomorrow. There will be an official announcement," she said while replying to question about the alliance.
On being asked about the declaration of name of candidates, she said, "The party (Congress) has been working on it. Today is a holiday, they will make announcements some time tomorrow."
According to party sources, Congress is ready for both the situation of forging an alliance or going alone and has begun the process of finalising the candidates for all seven parliamentary constituencies of Delhi.
On Saturday night between 10 to 12 PM, a meeting was held at Sheila Dikshit's residence regarding the alliance in which Delhi in-charge PC Chacko and organisation general secretary KC Venugopal also participated, sources said.
Earlier on March 26, amid the possibility of an alliance between Congress and AAP, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had hit out at former CM Sheila Dikshit-led Congress government and said he would not have had to launch a new party if she had run the government well.
AAP has already announced its candidates for seven parliamentary seats in Delhi.
