Arvind Kejriwal advised Rahul Gandhi to work with the AAP in opposition to the central government’s proposed Delhi ordinance. Kejriwal addressed Rahul Gandhi directly regarding the ordinance issue and said they could discuss it over tea in case of any disagreement. In light of the current circumstances, the AAP didn’t make clear where it stood on attending the Shimla Meeting.
In a meeting in Patna earlier, opposition parties decided to run against the BJP in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. Congress’s refusal to denounce the “black ordinance” casts doubt on the Coalition in the AAP. It is unlikely that the opposition will come together if Gandhi and the Congress are reluctant to meet with AAP leaders, according to AAP sources.

Congress’s refusal to the condemnation of the “black ordinance” raise doubts in AAP on Coalition
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) doubts the likelihood of a coalition with the old party after an unpleasant exchange with Congress over the controversial Delhi ordinance.
Several parties asked Congress to publicly condemn the “black ordinance” during the opposition rally in Patna, but the party declined. According to the AAP’s post-meeting statement, this refusal has raised questions about Congress’ motivations.
If Gandhi and the Congress are hesitant to meet with AAP leaders, it is unlikely that the opposition will unite
The AAP source said that party leader and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said his party had consistently supported the Congress in the appropriate circumstances. “Kejriwal had fought against the cancellation of Rahul Gandhi’s Lok Sabha membership. If Gandhi and the Congress are hesitant to meet with AAP leaders, it is unlikely that the opposition will unite. The Congress has refused to budge despite our repeated requests for a meeting with the leadership,” sources added.
