New Delhi, Dec 24 IANS | 8 months ago

A section within the Congress was opposed to extending support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to help it form the government in Delhi, senior Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi said Tuesday.


"There were divergent views within the Congress on extending support to the Aam Aadmi Party. There is an opinion in the Congress that the decision to support AAP was not correct," Dwivedi told reporters here.

Dwivedi said the Congress, which ruled Delhi uninterruptedly for 15 years, changed the city for good.

"Even then, people rejected us... we should introspect," he said.

Fellow Congress leader Ahmed Patel reiterated that the AAP enjoys Congress support.

"AAP has our support and we hope they do good work," he said.
