Lt Governor Najeeb Jung denies taking decision on Govt. formation in Delhi
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung today denied taking any decision on government formation in Delhi, as the capital continues to be under governor's rule since Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned from his post.
"I haven't taken any decision yet, haven't sent out any signal. There's a possibility of everything," said Jung.
Earlier this month, the Supreme Court (SC) had asked the Centre to take a decision on the holding of Delhi Assembly elections, following a petition filed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal asking for the dissolution of the assembly and fresh polls.
AAP has often alleged that the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) is not allowing the party to form a government in the national capital and are opting for divisive politics. They have also alleged that BJP was indulging in unethical practices and trying to lure lawmakers to form a government in Delhi.
The BJP had won 31 seats in the assembly polls in December last year but its number came down to 28 in the 70-member house after three of its legislators including Union Health Minister, Harsh Vardhan, were elected to Lower House of the Parliament.
