AAP will not form alliance with any big party for Haryana polls: Yogendra Yadav

Tuesday, 31 December 2013 - 9:10pm IST | Agency: PTI

Aam Aadmi Party will not enter into alliance with any major political party while contesting the Assembly polls in Haryana.

"There is no question of taking support of any big party. Our fight is against corruption, price-rise and other essentials, and all big parties are responsible for this," senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav said.

He, however, said that AAP was in talks with smaller parties. "We are in talks with one-two small parties. AAP might take their support," he told reporters here.

On speculation that he will be portrayed as AAP's Chief Ministerial candidate in Haryana, Yadav said, "I have no knowledge about this. This is all media speculation." He said the party will choose the Chief Minister after it wins the election. "There is no CM candidate. After the party wins the election, decision will be taken on who will occupy the post," Yadav said.

Emphasising on the party's ethos, he said, "In AAP, there is no relevance of CM's post. We are all working to fulfil our responsibilities."

Replying to a question, he said AAP has not yet decided how many Lok Sabha seats it will contest from Haryana.

When asked if he would contest from Gurgaon seat, he said he could contest from any seat in the country. "I will go by whatever the party decides. As of now, no decision has been taken about who will contest from the Gurgaon seat. This is just speculation," he said.

The AAP leader claimed that there was 10 times more corruption in Haryana as compared to Delhi.

He said people were tired of dynasty politics and were looking for change.

Yadav appealed to people to donate to the party, saying AAP would not take money from any big corporation and would fight elections only with the common man's money.
