“Even as vested AAP interests create confusion, it's reiterated, @INCIndia will NOT be supporting them in Delhi for their diabolical power play,” AICC Communication Department Chairman Ajay Maken said on Twitter.
At the AICC briefing, party spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi said there was “not even an iota of truth” in these talks.
