Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Monday tweeted out saying that although he is ready for an alliance with the Aam Aadmi Party and can give 4 Lok Sabha seats for the party, "Mr Kejriwal has done another U turn!"

"An alliance between the Congress and AAP in Delhi would mean the rout of the BJP. The Congress is willing to give up 4 Delhi seats to the AAP to ensure this," Gandhi said in a tweet. 

He added that Congress' door for an alliance with the AAP in Delhi is still open, "but the clock is running out".

Earlier in the month, Kejriwal had said that Rahul Gandhi has refused to forge an alliance with the AAP for the Lok Sabha polls in the national capital.

Talking to reporters at the airport in Visakhapatnam, the AAP leader said he had met Gandhi recently and the Congress leader had refused to join hands with the AAP, news agency PTI reported. 

Asked about Congress' Delhi unit president Sheila Dikshit's remarks that Kejriwal never approached her for an alliance, the chief minister said, "We have met Rahul Gandhi. Dikshit is not that important leader".
