New Delhi, Dec 10: Amid confusions over formation of government in Delhi, Arvind Kejriwal's close aide in the party -- Prashant Bhushan seems to have set conditions for Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP's) support to Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).

Bhushan, senior Supreme Court advocate, expressed his personal opinion while saying that AAP may support BJP to form government in Delhi if BJP brings Jan Lokpal Bill into effect by Dec 29, 2013.

"If the BJP agrees to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill by December 29 and set up jan sabhas and other things in Delhi as promised by the Aam Aadmi Party.....and is willing to give this to us in writing, then we may consider supporting the party" said Bhushan.

However, contradicting to his previous statement, Bhushan later said that AAP will not give or take support either from the BJP or the Congress, Bhushan said, diminishing any remote possibility of Delhi getting a government anytime soon after the recent Assembly elections returned a hung House.

"We came up as an alternative for people to both Congress and BJP. We will not give or seek support from any," Bhushan told reporters.

Bhushan's statement surfaced at a time when their guru -- Gandhian crusader Anna Hazare began his indefinite fast demanding Jan Lokpal Bill. Hazare on Tuesday, Dec 10 began his fast protest at Ralegaon Siddhi. The septuagenarian said it's a "do aor die' situation.
