Clear stand on President’s rule in Delhi, AAP asks BJP

New Delhi, Feb 25: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Tuesday asked the BJP to make its stand clear on President’s rule in Delhi and on the assembly not being dissolved.

“AAP challenges the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) to break its mysterious silence and make its stand clear on the issue of imposition of President’s rule and Delhi assembly being kept under suspended animation,” said an AAP statement.

“It is surprising that the BJP, which is levelling wild allegations on the AAP leadership, is itself afraid to spell out its stand on whether the people of Delhi should be subjected to an indirect rule of the (Congress-led UPA) central government or they should be allowed to exercise their democratic and constitutional right of electing a new government,” asked the AAP.

President’s rule was imposed in Delhi Feb 17 after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal resigned.

AAP also questioned BJP on why it is hesitant to form a government with the Congress, and accused them of coming together in the assembly to stop the passage of Jan Lokpal bill – the issue on which Kejriwal resigned.
