New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party and the Congress have agreed to form an alliance for a joint fight against the Bharatiya Janata Party on Delhi’s seven Lok Sabha seats. Sources from both the parties have confirmed this on Friday.

According to the party insiders, both the parties have agreed to a three-point formula for cementing the alliance. Although, a formal announcement awaits Congress president Rahul Gandhi’s approval over the formula.

According to a three-point formula, Congress will amend its election manifesto to include a demand that Delhi be granted full statehood status. Secondly, the AAP will contest from the same number of seats in Delhi as the Congress does in Haryana. Lastly, both parties won’t have any alliance in Punjab as they feel the Bharatiya Janata Party is weak in that state.

However, Senior AAP leader and the party’s Delhi unit chief Gopal Rai said, “There will be no alliance if they (Congress) do not put the statehood demand in their manifesto.”
