While AAP indicated that an alliance with the Congress in Haryana is now unlikely, the potential tie-up between the two in Delhi continues to be uncertain.

The AAP had proposed 5:2 seat sharing with five seats for the ruling party and two for the Congress.

The AAP is contesting the upcoming polls in Haryana in alliance with the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP), which was launched by former chief minister Om Prakash Chautala's grandson Dushyant Chautala, following a power struggle in the state's main opposition Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) last year.

Dushyant Chautala also announced names of four out of seven candidates who will be contesting from the JJP. The AAP will be fielding three candidates in Haryana, from Ambala, Karnal and Faridabad.
