AAP split over decision to form government in Delhi again

New Delhi, May 19: Is the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) facing serious rift after the debacle in the Lok Sabha election? According to an ABP report, the parliamentary affairs committee (PAC) of the AAP is divided over the formation of government in Delhi again.

It had been reported that a section of the AAP leaders want to lead a government in Delhi again while the party said in a tweet that there were no such talks. The AAP had formed the government in Delhi in December last year with a backing of the Congress but quit the power after 49 days, after failing to push its Jan Lokpal bill through. Party convenor Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the post of chief minister after a lot of open drama.

AAP drew a blank in Delhi where it had won 28 seats in the Dec assembly polls

The AAP then decided to contest in over 400 seats in the just concluded Lok Sabha election but could manage just four seats with all its celebrity candidates losing their contests. Kejriwal himself lost to prime minister designate Narendra Modi in Varanasi by a massive margin though he had confidently propagated during the campaigning that Modi was certain to lose the contest by over 2 lakh votes.

The talks of returning to Delhi evolved thereafter.

Another section believes that it would be risky to contest another election at this moment and it could lead to break-up in the party. The AAP drew a blank in Delhi where it raised much hopes after the Delhi elections last year, leading to criticism across the board that it did not work according to a plan and was busy posing before the media.
