NEW DELHI: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that his party will not contest any elections before the Delhi Assembly polls.
Addressing reporters following the conclusion of the AAP national executive meeting in Sangrur, Kejriwal said the party will give the Assembly elections in Maharashtra, Haryana and the other states a miss, while concentrating on fighting the Delhi polls.
However, the AAP will contest next month’s bypolls from the two seats in Punjab.
The decision is in line with the party’s strategy to focus on the Delhi Assembly elections following its LS poll fiasco,where it had mustered a mere four seats after putting up candidates in 400 seats.
Earlier this week, the AAP leaders had met Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and requested him to dissolve the Assembly as none of the political parties had staked claim for government formation.
Kejriwal also told the LG that the BJP was involved in horse-trading and party has approached the AAP MLAs to solicit their support.
