Kejriwal meets Lt. Governor, seeks 10 days time
cancel

New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party Saturday sought 10 days time from Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to take a decision regarding government formation in Delhi.

AAP chief along with party members Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas met Najeeb Jung Saturday.

"We have asked for 10 days time to take decision on the matter," AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal told media persons outside the Lt Governors residence.

The Lt Governor invited AAP after the BJP declined the offer to form the government in the state as they didn't have a majority. BJP secured 31 seats and fell short of a clear majority in the 70 member house.

AAP obtained 28 seats in the Delhi assembly elections.

The Congress, which bagged eight seats, said they are ready to give unconditional outside support to the AAP.

Govt formation: Kejriwal sets some conditions for Cong, BJP
