Kejriwal and AAP leaders
New Delhi, Dec 20: Hours after Arvind Kejriwal's statement of announcement in connection with forming government in Delhi, Congress chief of Delhi unit -- Arvinder Singh Lovely sent a clear warning for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders in the national capital.

Lovely, while speaking to media, was quoted as said, "We have agreed to support from outside. We will support the AAP in the legislative assembly. They have won the election only by blaming us and through the promises they have made in their election manifesto. We want to give them a chance to implement their manifesto."

Speaking about several statements of AAP leaders, Loveley said, "The Congress is a very old party, and the AAP needs to watch the language they are using. They are testing our patience."

We want the manifesto for which people have voted to be implemented

"We want the manifesto for which people have voted to be implemented. We can also learn how they will implement their manifesto. We are still standing on our word. We are not directing them to do something. We just want them to maintain their own decorum while talking," Lovely added.

Kejriwal on Friday, Dec 20 informed that his party will announce the final decision on forming government in Delhi after Sunday, Dec 22. AAP leaders, who asked Delhiites to take decision on AAP's forming government taking support from Congress, are believed to have received affirmative response.

Addressing media here, Kejriwal earlier had said that being a people's party, they would carry out a referendum among the people of the city, and decide what to do next.

"We have written a letter for Delhiites now. 25 lakh copies will be made and distributed across the city to seek the people's feedback. People can phone in, send a text message, or leave a message on the AAP Facebook page," he added.

Kejriwal further said that AAP had written letters to both the Congress and the BJP.

"Congress had offered unconditional support. The BJP had said they would offer issue-based support. Delhi has 18 key issues. We had asked the Congress and the BJP about their opinions on those issues. It is surprising that BJP didn't even bother to respond to the letter," he said.

"Congress said that 16 of these points are administrative issues for which AAP would need no support, and for the remaining two, we offer our support," he added.

Criticizing both parties, Kejriwal said: "These leaders, in their arrogance, used to challenge us to fight elections. I will repeat, don't challenge the common man. He is the one who makes the roti, kapda, makan. It's not the netas who make all this."
