Congress accused the Aam Aadmi Party with helping BJP in Punjab and Goa assembly polls by becoming the saffron party’s “B-team”.

It said the AAP will now be “ousted” in upcoming civic polls in national capital, like it was in the elections held in the two states. “AAP contests only in those states where the BJP and Congress are in direct contest so that it can help the BJP by becoming its B-team,” Congress chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala told reporters.

Surjewala said the Congress is “indebted” to voters in Punjab and Goa, where AAP contested polls, for “disrupting those who call themselves disruptionist”.
