Arvind Kejriwal wants President to step in, vows to stop BJP govt in Delhi

Kejriwal vows to stop BJP in Delhi
New Delhi, Sept 6:  Accusing BJP of trying to form government in Delhi through "horse trading", Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said Aam Aadmi Party will seek the President's intervention to ensure that the saffron party does not get an invitation "under any circumstances" from the Lt Governor.

"How will BJP form government? Naturally, BJP wants to form government through horse-trading, by buying MLAs which is totally wrong. "They want to buy MLAs using money power, at Rs 20 crore each," he alleged.

Kejriwal also questioned the basis over which LG will reportedly invite BJP to form government in Delhi and termed it as a "deliberate" invitation to form government "dishonestly".

Kejriwal: BJP should not get an invitation to form govt under any circumstances

"The LG is saying that BJP will be invited to form government. On what basis are they going to prove (majority). This is a deliberate invitation to form government dishonestly. So we are meeting the President today and will request him to intervene in the matter. BJP should not get an invitation to form government under any circumstances," he said .

BJP is likely to be invited to form a government in Delhi with Jung sending a report to the President seeking permission to call the single largest party to take a shot at power though it is well short of majority in the assembly.

In his report, Jung gave a detailed analysis of the political situation in the city and underlined the need to have an elected government for Delhi which is under President's rule since February 17 following resignation of AAP government.

AAP and Congress have come down hard on Jung for his move to invite BJP to form government and accused him of promoting "horse-trading".
