New Delhi, Dec 24: Although Delhi is all set to get its new government with social activist-turned-politician Arvind Kejriwal, the founder of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) as its seventh chief minister along with the outside support of Congress, the party has made it clear that it will not "compromise on its basic principle of fighting against corruption".

In a panel discussion at a news channel, AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said that "his party would certainly not stop the party to initiate a probe against the Congress leaders, whose name have cropped in various scams, even if the government collapses."

Yadav maintained that "the probe against Congress and BJP leaders involved in various scams will be pursued".

He also said, "Arvind Kejriwal has written to Sonia Gandhi saying clearly that the involvement of the previous Delhi government in the Commonwealth Games scandal will be probed. We are not taking an antagonistic stand but a principled one."

It may be noted that AAP is not forming the government in Delhi by entering into any alliance with Congress party. It will rely only on its 28 MLAs.

Earlier, a close aide of Kejriwal as well as an AAP keym member Prashant Bhushan had raised doubts on the decision of AAP forming government with Congress's support.

He had claimed that AAP may not last longer after forming government in Delhi.

Bhushan was quoted as saying, "If the Congress and the BJP join hands to pull down our government, it's their wish."

He also added, "Given the past track record of the Congress party, I don't expect that our government will survive for long."

"Even though it will be a minority government, Bhushan was quoted as saying, "If the Congress and the BJP join hands to pull down our government, it's their wish."
