Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday (15 April) accused Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal of doing “yet another U-turn” on the alliance talks and said the doors of the Congress are open, but time running out.

“An alliance between the Congress & AAP in Delhi would mean the rout of the BJP. The Congress is willing to give up 4 Delhi seats to the AAP to ensure this. But, Mr Kejriwal has done yet another U turn! Our doors are still open, but the clock is running out,” Congress president said in a tweet.

However, Kejriwal responded by saying that the talks are still on and accused Gandhi of aiding Bharatiya Janata Party by dividing anti-Modi votes in Uttar Pradesh and in some other states.

“What U-turn? The talks are still on. Your tweet shows that an alliance is not your desire but only a pretension. I am pained that you are giving mere statements," Kejriwal tweeted in Hindi.

"Today, the foremost issue is to save the country from the threat of Modi-Shah. Unfortunately, you are helping Modi by dividing anti-Modi votes in Uttar Pradesh and in some other states," He added.

According to a PTI report, leaders of the two parties have held several rounds of discussions for a poll tie-up but the talks have reportedly failed.
