Lok Sabha polls between AAP and BJP, Congress not in picture:Kejriwal
New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections will be a contest between his Aam Aadmi Party and the Bharat Janata Party (BJP). The Congress  is "nowhere in picture", said the civil servant-turned-politician.

"People have two options before them. On a side there is BJP which has many members with corruption charges on them and on the other side there is AAP. These elections will be contested between these two perceptions," the Delhi Chief Minister said.

The AAP is ruling Delhi with Congress' support. The Congress, with its eight legislators, made up AAP's shortage in seats. AAP had won 28 of the 70 seats in the December elections.

Yesterday, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi hinted that he is the party's prime ministerial candidate. The Congress' decision on the same will be finalised on January 17.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections 2014, the AAP has launched a massive national membership drive and hunt for candidates.

On the same day she had tweeted, "India Against Corruption was against Cong in power not BJP in Opposition.Hence how can one be with Pol-Party the Whole Movement was against?"
