New Delhi, Dec 24 IANS | 1 year ago

The AAP Tuesday justified its decision to take outside support from the Congress to form a government in Delhi while warning both the BJP and the Congress of action against its corrupt ministers.


In a two-minute video posted on social networking sites, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said: "We'll take action against any previous corrupt ministers of the Congress and the BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party)."

Assuring the people it would implement all the 18 promises, the party said it did not "think of the Congress or the BJP" but "only of the common man" and its focus was on solving people's problems.

Justifying its decision to take outside support from the Congress, the party said it had asked 26 lakh Delhiites whether to take support or not of that party and the majority said "yes".

"People told us to form the government and prove that we can deliver. They asked us to run the government for as long as we could. We bow to their decision," AAP founder-leader Arvind Kejriwal said in the video.

Explaining how a minority government worked, AAP assured people that neither any ministry would be given to the Congress nor would it be part of the government.
