Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has decided to form the government in Delhi with outside support from Congress, is not sure about the longevity of the ministry as its leaders feel that going by the "track record" of the century-old party, it is to be seen how long it will last.

Making it clear that AAP won't accept any of Congress' conditions and implement its own agenda and fulfil promises, AAP leader Prashant Bhushan today said, "If Congress and BJP join hands to pull down our government, it's their wish."

He said that AAP, with 28 seats in the 70-member Assembly, has decided to form the government after taking the views of the people, who overwhelmingly voted in favour of government formation with outside support from eight-member Congress.

"Given the past track record of the Congress party, I don't expect that our government will survive for long... one month, four months or six months, it is to be seen," Bhushan said.


"Even though it will be a minority government, we are prepared not to accept any condition by Congress or BJP. We will be faithfully implementing our agenda and our manifesto promises... We are not forming the government given the fact that it may for a certain period of time," he said.

Bhushan also said that AAP was forming the ministry to show the people of the country that there are different ways of running a government than what is being practised by the Congress and BJP.

"That, it is possible to run the government on the basis of the people's opinion and their views. It is possible in this country to run a government by doing away with the VIP culture. It is possible to run a government for the purpose for changing the political system, make it more responsive to the people and that's the message we want to give," he said.
