Shinde gives time to AAP on government formation; Kejriwal hits back

AAP says not answerable to Shinde
New Delhi, Dec 19: Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Thursday said that the centre is ready to give 'some more time' to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to come to a decision on government formation, and in response, AAP said they are not answerable to the Home Minister and will answer only to the people.

"We have asked the Lt Guv, how much time has the party sought," Shinde said. Shinde's query to the Lt Guv comes in a bid to end the stalemate over government formation in the national capital.

However, in a quick response to Shinde's statement, AAP has said that it is not answerable to Sushil Kumar Shinde. The party has said that it will take a decision on the government formation in Delhi on Monday, December 23.

Meanwhile, BJP has blamed both AAP and Congress for the delay and uncertainty. "For this uncertain situation in Delhi AAP & Congress responsible. Whether they want to form government or not, they should clarify," BJP's Vijay Goel.

Less than 24 hours after its convenor Arvind Kejriwal announced an unprecedented public referendum on forming its government in Delhi with Congress support, the Aam Aadmi Party was flooded with more than four lakh responses across different platforms on Wednesday.

The party, however, did not disclose the content of these responses, saying that the final public mandate will only be analysed after holding 272 public meetings over the weekend.
