Nitish sets eyes on 2014 polls with JD (U) Sankalp rally
Patna, Dec 9: JD(U) leader and Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar on Monday said his party is ready to support Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) if they forming government in Delhi. AAP won 28 seats in the assembly elections, less seats than what is required to form a government. The JD(U) has won one seat in these polls.

BJP, which won 33 seats, has also fallen short of majority. This has led to a political pendemonium in Delhi. Congress was unable to make hardly any mark in the elections. 

Nitish said the fall of the Congress was not due to a Modi wave, but due to anti-Congress wave in the country. Meanwhile, AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal is holding meetings with his partymen in Delhi. AAP is unlikely to form an alliance with BJP or any other party.

BJP has also ruled out forming an alliance with the AAP.

In this situation, the options available for Delhi are :

1.BJP can form a minority government and seek a trust vote in the Assembly.

2.President's rule in the national capital.

3.Re-elections can be held if there is no positive movement towards government formation.
