AAP gets 5 lakh views on government formation

New Delhi, Dec 19 : Over 5 lakh replies have been received, till Thursday evening, from the people of the capital and outside on the Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) poser whether it should form a government in Delhi with Congress support, said a party member.


"We have received a total of 5.25 lakh replies through SMS, interactive voice response and web," an AAP leader told IANS.

"The responses are still being received. The compilation would be conducted Sunday evening and the result would be announced on Monday," he said.

He also said that the party was receiving responses from people outside Delhi too.

AAP had launched a message campaign Tuesday evening seeking to know if it should form a government after the Dec 4 elections resulted in a hung assembly.

The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which ended as the single largest party with 31 seats in the 70-member house, declined to form a government. The AAP, with 28 seats, was invited next but sought time to give its reply.

The routed Congress, left with just eight seats, offered outside support to the AAP.

AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday said his party would announce its final decision on taking power Dec 23 after finding out the views of the people.
