Upadhaya, AAP's national executive member, claimed that the both parties had struck a deal in which they had decided that Congress would support AAP to make Arvind Kejriwal the chief minister of Delhi and Yogendra Yadav the CM of Haryana if they, in turn, supported Rahul Gandhi's name for prime ministership in case of a hung assembly.
However, AAP refused to accept all allegations against it calling them baseless. Updhaya has been openly critical of the party in the past month. During a press meet, the rebel AAP leader said that senior members of the two parties had met in Aman Hotel in 2013 and allegedly took the decision.
Congress would support AAP to make Arvind Kejriwal the chief minister of Delhi
Earlier former BJP President Nitin Gadkari had hurled similar kind of allegations against AAP and Congress when the Kejriwal's party formed government in Delhi taking outside support from Congress.
Gadkari had alleged a deal was brokered between AAP and Congress by a reputed industrialist in a hotel to "stop BJP at any cost" from coming to power in Delhi.
Training his guns at AAP, Gadkari had termed it as a "right wing Maoist party" which wanted to "destroy" the democratic system. Addressing a workers meeting, Gadkari said he was told by a reputed industrialist of the country how a deal was brokered at a hotel in Delhi.
"One of the big industrialists of our country helped make a deal between Arvind Kejriwal and some senior Congress leaders at a big hotel in Delhi.I was personally told about what talks had transpired in that hotel and what all was eaten by the same person," said Gadkari.
