AAP tried for an alliance with the Congress party but after Sheila Dixit's refusal, they decided to go on their own.

"Sheila Dikshit has said a straight no to the alliance. Rahul Gandhi also said not possible... Aam Aadmi Party wanted the alliance, but the Congress is not ready" Gopal Rai said.

At a public meeting last week, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said he was "tired" of trying to persuade the Congress to agree to an alliance with his AAP. A day later, Sheila Dikshit retorted, "When did AAP ever come to us? If Arvind wants an alliance, then he should directly speak to me."

News reports on say that AAP headed by Kejriwal is going solo in Delhi having announced its candidates on 2 March 2019. No tie up with Congress. On the same date , some news reports of who is with whom in Andhra Pradesh and Telengana States in the south of India , have appeared. Overall picture of so called “Mahagathbandhan” across the country does not seem to be any solid. Thus it can be said that in substance , the political picture so far is a scattered one with few exceptions. These circumstances in the political landscape of the country look to be corresponding to this Vedic astrology writer’s predictive alert of last year on 7 October , 2018 through article - “ The Year 2019 Astrologically for India” - published at The text of the related alert in the article reads like this :- “ Now here , the year 2019 is in the focus about India , when multi- sections of society are likely to present a scattered political picture. A kind of political hysteria catering to varying vested interests looks to be coming up”.
