Apparently keeping open the option of an alliance with the AAP in Delhi, the Congress on Wednesday sought opinion of party workers on whether the two parties should have a pre-poll tie-up to defeat the BJP in the upcoming Lok Sabha election. In a message sent to the party workers through its 'Shakti' mobile application, Delhi Congress in-charge P C Chacko has sought views of the party workers on the alliance.

The development comes amid Congress' reluctance to ally with the Aam Aadmi Party with whom it shares a similar vote base. A senior Delhi Congress leader said the tie-up could take place by the end of this month and the ruling AAP would contest four seats while his party would be in fray in three seats .
