TV reports suggested that the BJP rejected Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung's offer to form the government and said that the party did not have the numbers to do so.
Earlier today, reports suggested that the Delhi BJP was directed to prepare for fresh polls. Reports suggested that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah were not in favour of government formation and were open to fresh elections.
Meanwhile, Jung has called for an all-party meet where he is likely to discuss the government formation with Congress, BJP and AAP leaders in the evening.
Earlier AAP had challenged the BJP to go for fresh polls in the capital. BJP that is riding high on its success in the Lok Sabha elections and also the Maharashtra and Haryana assembly elections, rejected Jung's offer to form a government and will go for fresh polls.
BJP leaders are confident of winning if there are fresh elections held in the capital. Congress on the other hand hit out at the BJP saying that it was delaying the Delhi government formation.
