New Delhi, Jan 25: The Congress party has decided to hold a referendum after the Lok Sabha elections on whether it should continue supporting the Kejriwal-led AAP government. It has said that the advise of the people will be sought and the party would act according to their demands. However, party sources confirm that support will not be withdrawn from the state's newest member.

We will not withdraw support to AAP till the Lok Sabha elections. We don't want to make them martyrs and gain public sympathy. But we will definitely ask the people of Delhi what they want us to do as far as the issue of continuing with the support is concerned," said a Congress worker.

According to a report by HindustanTimes The decision was taken in the wake of the recent AAP showdown outside the Rail Bhavan in New Delhi, demanding the suspension of two police officers in the Khirki case and seeking Delhi Police's control to the state government.

Mukesh Sharma, a member of the Delhi Congress party said,"We will be going to people in Delhi for a referendum on the support issue. Whatever people say, we will do that... We will respect their verdict."

With this, the AAP will get a taste of its own medicine that won it votes in the Assembly Elections. It had won 28 votes out of the 70 seats in Delhi and was short of just 8 votes. Congress, on the other hand won just 8 votes and decided to join the AAP.

The party, however, maintains that in doing so it saved the Delhiites from snap polls. AAP too put "public service" to the fore as a reason behind accepting Congress's offer.
