Rahul Gandhi seeks party workers’ feedback on possible alliance with AAP in Delhi

New Delhi: The Congress is still considering the possibility of an electoral pact with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in the national capital, although the proposal has already been unanimously rejected by the leaders of party’s Delhi unit.

Even party chief Rahul Gandhi had earlier ruled out alliance with AAP for the upcoming polls in Delhi as he told party cadres to work to ensure victory at all the seven Lok Sabha seats at stake in Delhi. But now the party is likely to consider this matter once more after getting workers’ views.

Sources revealed the party is trying to obtain the opinion of its workers on this issue. Sources said Rahul Gandhi will sift through the workers’ feedback and have another meeting with party’s Delhi leaders before arriving at the decision.

Workers to receive voice message on their cell-phones

To get workers’ feedback, Congress had earlier used voice message on their cell-phones through the Shakti app, while picking the chief ministers for the Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh following last year’s assembly polls.

This time, the workers will receive the voice message from party leader PC Chacko, and like previous time the party has promised complete confidentiality to the workers.
