The Aam Aadmi Party will independently contest on all Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, Haryana and Punjab, senior party leader Gopal Rai said on Thursday. However, he added that the party will field candidates only in selected seats.

Rai, who is also the party's Delhi convener asserted that the Congress was not a 'serious player' in Delhi for the upcoming parliamentary elections and the AAP will emerge victorious in a direct fight with the BJP.

"The AAP will contest independently on all the Lok Sabha seats in Delhi, Punjab and Haryana. In other states we will contest on selected seats where our organisational strength and local situations suit us," he told reporters in New Delhi.

He said there were no chances of a 'mahagathbandhan' (grand alliance) coming into being before the elections in 2019 and the BJP could be defeated only through state-specific strategies.

"In the current scenario, the Congress is not a serious player in Delhi for the 2019 parliamentary polls and there are no chances of its revival in the future," he said.

Unless the BJP resorts to some last minute "manipulations", the AAP will win on the basis of the work done by its government in Delhi, Rai said.
