Delhi Guv Will Explore All Options for New Govt: Shinde

As Delhi returned a hung verdict in the Assembly elections, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde today said the Lieutenant Governor will explore all options of forming a new government before taking a call.

"The LG will first explore all options of government formation. As of now, the Home Ministry has no role in it," Shinde told reporters here.

He was responding to a question on the possibility of imposition of President's rule in Delhi after the results of the Assembly elections where no party got absolute majority.

Sources said the LG is expected to call the single largest party BJP, which along with its partner Akali Dal's one seat has 32 MLAs, to know whether it is ready to form a new government.

If the BJP declines to form the government due to the lack of majority in the 70-member House, the LG then may ask the second largest party - the Aam Admi Party which bagged 28 seats - whether it is in a position to form the government.

Sources said even though both BJP and AAP had declared that it would not stake claim of forming the government, the LG will individually talk to leaders of the two parties Harsh Vardhan and Arvind Kejriwal respectively.

After that the LG will send a report to the Home Ministry for future course of action.

If the LG suggests for President's rule, the Home Ministry will move to the Union Cabinet and the Cabinet, if convinces with the LG's suggestions, will recommend for President's rule by keeping the Assembly under suspended animation.

Duh!

How does he know?
Congress has reduced every institution to such depth that this weird and brazen statement like this one passes as a norm.
But yaa, when secular Congress does anything, why would secular media object?

" Why should the single largest party decline to govern?

Afraid of the opposition?  "

How dumb of you , check the results and then comment accordingly., Why should anyone be afraid of opposition if they have majority. Any government formed will not have confidence of the house. On the first day itself , confidence motion will be defeated.Government can be formed only if AAP aligns with BJP or Congress.

I always thought Chennai is home to the best of mathematical brains , sadly MISOGYNIST proves otherwise.
