In a significant development ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the Congress have officially confirmed their alliance and unveiled their seat-sharing agreements for Delhi, Gujarat, Haryana, and Goa.

The alliance details were shared by Congress general secretary and MP Mukul Wasnik, who outlined the distribution of seats in each state. In Gujarat, the Congress will contest 24 seats while AAP will field candidates in 2 constituencies – Bharuch and Bhavnagar. Similarly, in Haryana, Congress will contest 9 seats and AAP will contest in Kurukshetra. In Delhi, AAP will lead with four seats – New Delhi, West Delhi, South Delhi, and East Delhi – while Congress will contest in Chandni Chowk, North East, and North West constituencies.

Wasnik also revealed that after careful deliberation, the Congress will contest the Chandigarh seat independently.

In Goa, the Congress will field candidates for both Lok Sabha seats. However, there were no comments from either party regarding Punjab, where AAP formed a government in 2022 after displacing the Congress.

Earlier this month, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal had announced that his party would contest all 13 Lok Sabha seats in Punjab, hinting at a potential clash between AAP and Congress in the state.

The alliance between AAP and Congress marks a significant shift in their political dynamics, particularly in Punjab and Delhi where they have been traditional rivals. Notably, the two parties joined forces and emerged victorious in the Chandigarh mayoral elections last month, following intervention from the Supreme Court.

Addressing the press after announcing the alliance, AAP MP Sandeep Pathak emphasized the need for a strong alternative to the current political scenario in the country. He highlighted concerns such as the alleged erosion of democratic institutions, injustices faced by farmers, unemployment, and inflation, asserting that the alliance was formed with the nation’s interests at heart.

“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,” Pathak declared, underscoring the collective commitment to prioritize national interests over partisan politics.
