New Delhi, May 11: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday refused to support Third Front.

On micro-blogging site Twitter, Kejriwal tweeted:

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>Media will spread rumors against us at the last moment. I urge people not to believe media. Most of them r sold out</p>— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) <a href="">May 11, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet blockquote" lang="en"><p>There is absolutely no question of supporting third front. Media shud stop playing dirty games on the eve of elections</p>— Arvind Kejriwal (@ArvindKejriwal) <a href="">May 11, 2014</a></blockquote> <script async src="//" charset="utf-8"></script>

Earlier, PTI report said that AAP leader did not rule out backing Third Front to stop BJP from coming to power, saying it may offer issue based support to a non-Congress "secular" dispensation.

AAP leader Gopal Rai had said, "Yes, we may extend issue based support if there is a situation that demands our support to a Third Front government."

Rai, considered close to Kejriwal also said a decision on future role of the party will be taken after analysing the outcome of the election.

"Our movement is for common people and support will be definitely issue-based. Final decision on future course of action will be taken after May 16 when results will be declared," he had said.

AAP has fielded candidates in 422 Lok Sabha seats and Kejriwal had earlier claimed that his party will win at least 100 seats.

The AAP had in a stunning victory in its electoral debut bagged 28 seats in Delhi Assembly elections in December last year and a number of senior party leaders said they will repeat the "surprise" in the Lok Sabha polls as well.
