"It is indeed a sad commentary on democracy that despite lapse of more than 15 days since the results of May 16 assembly polls were announced, Congress could not form the Ministry," AIADMK's legislature party leader A Anbalagan told reporters here.
He urged Lt Governor Kiran Bedi to come out with a firm step to ensure that a new government was formed here.
"She can in the alternative ask the next single largest party to go in for formation of the ministry," he suggested.
"We are not in a position to do our democratic duties in our constituencies as we are yet to be sworn in as members of the House," he said.
Anbalagan said he would lead an AIADMK delegation to meet the Lt Governor and seek her intervention to break the deadlock.
