Delhi still struggling to form govt
New Delhi, Dec 9: After a magnificent debut by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), that not only upset the Congress by ending Sheila Dikshit's 15-year winning streak but also played spoilsport for the BJP, the next question on everybody's mind is- what next for Delhi?

On Monday the AAP maintained that it would not stake claim to form government in Delhi and instead will play the role of 'constructive opposition.'

The party said that it was the BJP's responsibility to form the government, it being the single largest party in Delhi. AAP member Yogendra Yadav said that the party had no intention of forming government in Delhi or helping the BJP to form it. "We have got no majority so it is very surprising that the number one party, which is the BJP, is not ready to form the government and is telling us to do so," he said.

He said that if they formed the government with the BJP, the people would lose their trust in the party. He said that from the beginning the party had made it very clear that it would not support nor will it seek support from any party.

AAP member Manish Sisodia said that if there is no solution, re-polling would be the best option.

AAP members on Monday met Lt Governor Najeeb Jung to discuss about the next step after a situation of hung assembly hovered on Delhi.
