As no party has staked claim to form a government in Delhi so far, Congress today took a swipe at both the BJP and AAP for "running away" from government-formation as they will not be able to fulfill their pre-poll promises.

Congress MP Sanjay Nirupam told reporters outside Parliament that both the parties were not ready to form the government as they would have to face public ire within six months of assuming power as they would not be able to achieve their respective pre-election promises.

"Because they cannot fulfill their promises that is why they are escaping from forming the government," Nirupam said.

Arvind Kejriwal waves to supporters after AAP's strong performance in the Delhi polls.


He said the Congress had announced that it was ready to support AAP without any conditions so it should try to form a government in Delhi.

Noting that BJP emerged as the largest party, the Congress MP said they have won the elections after the people of Delhi reposed faith in the party so that it can work for them.

"You said you will reduce the prices of vegetables, electricity and fuel. You should do it now. Why are you running away?" Nirupam asked.

In reply to a question on reports that AAP may field its candidate Kumar Vishwas against Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi from Amethi , Nirupam dismissed it as a threat to the party's prospects in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.

"They are welcome to contest from any part of India if they are so excited with their victory in Delhi. But I would like to tell them that every day is not a Sunday," he added.
