Kanhaiya Kumar meets Arvind Kejriwal's wife, says Congress-AAP are fighting for people of Delhi in Lok Sabha polls

New Delhi: Congress leader Kanhaiya Kumar, who is contesting Lok Sabha elections against BJP MP Manoj Tiwari from the North East Delhi constituency, met Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's wife Sunita Kejriwal at her residence in the national capital on Wednesday.

Kumar later said that it was a courtesy meeting and Congress and Aam Aadmi Party are contesting all seven seats in Delhi together. He said they are fighting for people of Delhi.

"The kind of dictatorship going on in the country, anyone can be put in jail. I met her (Sunita Kejriwal) and said that we are together in this fight against dictatorship...We are not fighting elections on four seats but on 543 seats. Even in Delhi, we as INDIA alliance are contesting elections on seven seats. We are fighting for the people of Delhi and not for a party or a candidate," he said.

A section of Delhi Congress workers had protested over candidature of Kanhaiya Kumar after Delhi Congress chief Arvinder Singh Lovely resigned on Sunday expressing his reservation over alliance between AAP and Congress. Protesting Congress workers said they "need local candidate".

Lovely wrote in his resignation letter that Delhi Congress unit was against an alliance with a party "which was formed on the sole basis of leveling false, fabricated and malafide corruption charges against the Congress Party"

" Despite that, the party made a decision to ally with the AAP in Delhi...," he said.

Lovely also said he did not get freedom to select party functionaries.

Sunita Kejriwal will hold road show in support of AAP candidates in Gujarat's Bharuch and Bhavnagar on Thrusday.
