NEW DELHI: Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung on Wednesday said he would call all political parties to explore the possibility of government formation in the national capital.
The LG also met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and briefed him on the prevailing political situation in the capital.
“In view of the President’s nod to explore the possibility of installing a popular government in Delhi, the LG would meet leaders of all political parties over the next few days,” read the statement that Jung’s Office issued after the meeting.
When asked about calling a meeting of all the political parties, “instead of the BJP, the LG said the views of leaders of all political parties were needed to end the stalemate.”
Jung had last month written a letter to the President, seeking his views on inviting the BJP, the single largest party, to form the government.
Jung is expected to convene the all-party meeting this week itself. The move comes a day after the Constitution Bench of the Supreme Court rapped him and the Centre over the delay in taking a decision on government formation in the capital.
