2024 Elections: AAP-Congress alliance to face BJP in Delhi, Haryana, Gujarat

On Saturday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress confirmed their alliance for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, revealing their seat-sharing agreements for Delhi, Gujarat, and Haryana.

In Gujarat, the Congress will compete in 24 seats, while AAP will contest in 2. In Haryana, the Congress is set to contest 9 seats, while AAP will compete in one seat. In Delhi, AAP will lead with four seats, and the Congress will contest three seats.

“Gujarat has 26 Lok Sabha seats. Congress will contest on 24. AAP will have its candidates on 2 seats – Bharuch and Bhavnagar,” Congress general secretary and MP Mukul Wasnik said, reported Hindustan Times.

“Haryana has 10 Lok Sabha seats. Congress will contest on 9. AAP will have its candidates on 1 seat – in Kurukshetra,” he added.

In Delhi, AAP will vie for seats in New Delhi, West Delhi, South Delhi, and East Delhi, while the Congress will contend for seats in Chandni Chowk, North East, and North West.

The two parties, members of the INDIA alliance, are still discussing a potential arrangement in Assam.

“Today, the situation that the country is going through – the manner in which the BJP Government is finishing all institutions one by one, the elections are being ‘stolen’ and Opposition leaders are being put in jail to win elections, the manner in which injustice is being done with farmers, the manner in which people of the country are suffering through unemployment and inflation…the country needs an honest and strong alternate,” said AAP MP Sandeep Pathak after announcing the alliance.

“Keeping that in mind, casting aside our own political interests and keeping in mind the interest of the nation, we came together in this alliance. It is the country which is important, party is always secondary. This election will not be fought in the manner that Congress will contest from here and AAP will contest from there, INDIA will contest this election,” he added.
