New Delhi, Dec 23: Senior Supreme Court advocate Prashant Bhushan's statement regarding future of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) shocked all. Bhushan, who is also an AAP leader and a close aide of Arvind Kejriwal, claimed that AAP may not last longer after forming government in Delhi.

Bhushan's statement surfaced just hours after Kejriwal's official announcement on forming with government in the national capital with Congress's support.

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.

We are prepared not to accept any condition by the Congress or the BJP

"Even though it will be a minority government, we are prepared not to accept any condition by the Congress or the BJP," asserted Bhushan.

Bhushan's statement was a sharp criticism at former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday, Dec 23 claimed that Congress support to AAP is conditional. However, the party earlier had vowed to give unconditional support to Kejriwal's party.

The AAP, which has 28 legislators in the 70-member assembly, will take outside support from the Congress' eight MLAs. No party reached the majority mark in the polls held on December 4, with the BJP emerging as the single largest party (32).
