BJP likely to be asked to form Govt
The BJP, with 29 legislators, is the single largest party after the Delhi assembly polls in December threw up a fractured verdict with no party crossing the finishing line. Arvind Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which placed second, took power with help from the Congress, which was reduced to just eight seats after 15 years in power.
But Mr Kejriwal resigned on February 14 after 49 days in power, after failing to push his pet anti-corruption Jan Lokpal Bill.
The President is believed to have forwarded the Lieutenant Governor's recommendation to the Union Home Ministry. The report said BJP should be allowed to prove its majority on the floor of the assembly.
Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyaya told NDTV cautiously, "We have to analyse if we are in a position to form government."
The Delhi BJP had been seen to be making efforts to form government after the party's spectacular victory in the national election in May.
AAP has accused the BJP of trying to poach its legislators to try and cobble a government. The party has also targeted the Lieutenant Governor repeatedly, accusing him of bias.
"The L-G is working at the behest of the BJP," said AAP spokesperson Ashutosh.
Mr Kejriwal's party had petitioned the Supreme Court asking for fresh elections and an elected government in Delhi. The case will be heard next on Tuesday. more
