President of India, Pranab Mukherjee has cleared Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung's plan to invite the single largest party to form government in Delhi and allow it to prove its majority in the assembly. Currently BJP has 28 legislators as three elected MLAs were promoted to Lok Sabha. The by-election for the three Assembly seats will be held on November 25 and if BJP retains the seats, it will have an edge to form government in Delhi.
This is a major blow to the Aam Aadmi Party [AAP] which has been doing all sorts to form government or go for fresh elections in Delhi. AAP even moved to Supreme Court as the state is in suspension mode and in September, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung has written to the President of India, seeking his views.
Post the election results of Maharashtra and Haryana, BJP got the courage to do something in Delhi and so is heard to be looking to form government in Delhi. The developments in Delhi are changing soon and what will AAP do now to restrict BJP from forming government is yet to be known.
