AAP to meet Governor, reluctant to form government in Delhi

Kaushambi, (Uttar Pradesh), Dec. 13: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Yogendra Yadav said on Friday the Lieutenant Governor had invited them for a discussion to explore possibilities of government formation in Delhi.

“The Lieutenant Governor has written a letter, inviting us for a discussion to explore the possibilities of forming the government in Delhi, at Raj Niwas on Saturday morning,” said Yadav.

“Arvind will go there and speak to them, though he has been keeping a little unwell, and we will keep our situation in front of them. We do not have a clear majority, and we will tell them that we cannot have a give and take relationship between us, as the AAP does not follow that ideology,” he added.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), the single largest group in the 70-seat house with 31 members has refused to form a government.

The Congress says that a number of senior leaders of Delhi are of the opinion that the party should extend unconditional support to the Aam Aadmi Party to form a government in the national capital.

AAP Convener Arvind Kejriwal, however, said that his party will neither take nor extend support to either BJP or Congress to form the government. He said, AAP is ready for fresh elections in the city.

Harsh Vardhan said, his party does not have enough numbers to form a stable government and is ready to fight the election once again. (ANI)
