New Delhi, Dec 25: Not even a day had passed after the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) decided to form a government in Delhi with the Congress's support and it already hit its first roadblock. A section of Congress supporters have raised a demand to rethink offering support to Arvind Kejriwal's party which had been vocal against it on the issue of corruption.

Congress general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi said on Tuesday that some members of the Congress were opposed to the decision of supporting the AAP. He said it would have been better if the Congress party sat in the Opposition and address people's issues.

The Congress's divided position will add more to the trouble that Kejriwal is already facing in his own party. Reports said Kejriwal and his team were busy pacifying Vinod Kumar Binny, one of the AAP MLAs, who resented over the Cabinet's formation. Binny, a former Congressman, and Kejriwal, however, denied any rift within the party. Another AAP leader Manish Sisodia, a former journalist, said he was not aware whether Binny was upset.

The AAP's cabinet includes besides Sisodia, IIT graduate and lawyer Somnath Bharti, former journalist and activist Rakhi Birla, architect Satyendra Jain, engineer Saurabh Bhardwai and Girish Soni.

The AAP leadership said earlier that it would probe the corruption charges against the Congress ministers even if that meant collapse of the government in Delhi.
