Top Aam Aadmi Party leaders met today to discuss the next course of action after Congress made its stand clear on the 18 issues raised by party convenor Arvind Kejriwal.

Nine senior members of the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC), including Kejriwal, Kumar Vishwas, Manish Sisodia and Prashant Bhushan, met at the AAP convenor's residence in Kaushambi (Ghaziabad) early this morning, but they could not reach any conclusion and called for a meeting of AAP MLAs to take a final decision.

"We have called a meeting of MLAs at 2 PM and then final decision will be taken," AAP spokesman Manish Sisodia said after the almost three-hour meeting.


After Congress decided to extend unconditional support to AAP on December 13, Kejriwal had written letters to Congress Chief Sonia Gandhi and BJP President Rajnath Singh seeking their parties' views on 18 issues, including passing of Janlokpal Bill, full statehood to Delhi, reduction on water tariff and audit of power discoms among others, before moving ahead to form a government.

Congress had then put the ball in AAP's court, saying 16 of its 18 demands needed just administrative decisions and had nothing to do with Parliament or Assembly.
