AAP to Support INDIA Bloc Candidates in UP

NEW DELHI, Apr 12: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has announced unconditional support to the INDIA bloc candidates in Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha polls pointing out that these elections were being held to “save democracy” and end an “autocratic government.”

“AAP will fully support the INDIA bloc candidates in Uttar Pradesh. What our role will be and how we will be involved in the campaign will be decided after holding talks with the Congress leadership involved in the campaigning. We will fully support the Samajwadi Party candidates,” said AAP leader and Rajya Sabha MP Sanjay Singh.

Addressing a joint press conference at the Samajwadi Party (SP) headquarter in Lucknow along with its chief Akhilesh Yadav, the AAP leader asserted there was “no condition or demand.”

“These are not normal elections, they are for saving democracy, ending the autocracy and saving the Constitution. We are together in UP, wherever the Samajwadi Party candidate is in the fray, INDIA alliance candidate is in fray we will work for them,” he added.

Exuding confidence that the INDIA bloc will win the elections, Mr Singh said every worker and elected representative of his party would work for the SP candidates.

Taking a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the arrest of elected chief ministers, Mr Singh said, “If any politician is winning, he would not indulge in such tactics and tricks as being done by the PM of putting opponents in jail by framing fake cases, it means lack of confidence at election time.”

Akhilesh Yadav thanked the AAP for the support and said the present election was not taking place in common circumstances but to “safeguard the Constitution.” Mr Yadav slammed the Central government for sending AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal and JMM leader Hemant Soren to jail before the polls and said the BJP was doing this out of fear of losing the elections.
