Kapil Sibal
Congress will form the government: Sibal

New Delhi, May 5 (IANS) Echoing Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, senior party leader Kapil Sibal Tuesday expressed confidence that the party will form the next government, and not sit in the opposition. 

“The Congress will not sit in the opposition. We will form the government. On May 16, the arithmetic of politics will be clear. We will figure out whether we need a coalition this time or not,” he told reporters at the press conference called to announce 15 local Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were joining the Congress. 

Addressing a press conference earlier Tuesday, Gandhi said: “We don’t think we are going to sit in the opposition.” 

Trying to woo the Left parties, Sibal said: “All secular parties have a common ground and Left is secular. If people lose faith in the Left parties, then that is a different case. We are not influencing the people against the Left.” 

In a dig at the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP), Sibal said it could not do anything for the Dalits just by constructing buildings and putting up statues with public money. 

Also present at the press conference was Shoaib Iqbal, Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) legislator from Matia Mahal constituency - a part of Chandni Chowk Lok Sabha constituency from where Sibal is contesting - who expressed his support for the Congress party.
