AAP says it will form government in Delhi
New Delhi, Dec 23, 2013 (IANS): 11:38 IST
Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) founder leader Arvind Kejriwal Monday said they are ready to form the government in Delhi.
Kejriwal, who led his party's stunning electoral debut, said that the AAP "is ready to form the government".
He said he will meet Lt Governor Najeeb Jung.
The AAP had bagged 28 seats in the 70-member Delhi assembly. The Bharatiya Janata Party had emerged as the single largest party by winning 31 seats while the Congress had stood a poor third with eight seats.
The BJP decided not to form the government, following which AAP leaders met Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and sought 10 days time. The AAP then held a referendum to know from the people whether or not they should form a minority government.
