Delhi suspense continues as Kejriwal seeks ten days time from LG
December 14, 2013, 10:26 am

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal has sought ten days time to decide government formation in Delhi after meeting Delhi Lt, Governor Najeeb Jung Saturday morning thus keeping the suspense in Delhi intact.

The Congress has yesterday extended its unconditioned support to AAP and shot a letter in this direction to Lt, Governor Jung but Kejriwal questioned to what unconditional support means

Kejriwal on Saturday met Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung who called Kejriwal to discuss government formation. The invitation came after the BJP declined the offer to form the government and said it will sit in the opposition.

Kejriwal has also shot a letter to Congress president Sonia Gandhi and BJP President Rajnath Singh asking several question on Lok Pal bill while giving them seven days time to respond.

“We will take another three days to decide our final action plan”

Meanwhile, JD-U's lone MLA in Delhi Assembly Shoaib Iqbal has sent his letter of support for the Aam Aadmi Party to Najeeb Jung.

Congress on Friday sought to inject some life into government making in Delhi by offering unconditional support to Aam Aadmi Party which has so far expressed reluctance to take over reins of power.

Ahead of Lt Governor Najeeb Jung's meeting with Arvind Kejriwal, DPCC president J.P. Agarwal sent a letter to him offering support of its eight MLAs to the AAP so that a new government can be formed in the city.

On Thursday, BJP's chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan met Jung and told him that his party would sit in the opposition as it has no clear majority in the 70-member house.

The BJP is single largest party with 31 seats followed by 28 of AAP and Congress at just 8.

AAP has maintained it will neither support nor take support from any party.
