Time will tell if AAP succeeds: PM

New Delhi, Jan 3 : Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday admitted that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has got a mandate in Delhi on the issue of corruption but whether they would succeed in the long run would remain to be seen.


Addressing the media, he said on a question of AAP :"Whether they will succeed or not, only time will tell."

He said AAP came to power certainly on the issue of corruption but dealing with corruption is not an easy process and there are both opportunities and challenges for that.

"We must collectively grapple with the task of dealing with corruption. This is not a matter which only one party can accomplish. Various political parties have to work together to deal with this monster," he said.

He also strongly defended himself in the coal scam, 2G and other such cases.

"I feel somewhat sad because I was the one who insisted that spectrum allocations should be transparent. I was the one who insisted that coal blocks should be allocated on the basis of auctions," he said.

"These facts are forgotten and the Opposition has vested interests. When history is written we will come out unscathed. This is not to say there weren't regularities," he said.
