According to reports, the BJP does not seem to be keen to form Delhi government as it does not have the majority number.
However, the senior BJP leader and Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu expressed confidence that the BJP will emerge as the single largest party, with clear majority, whenever the elections take place in Delhi.
On Aam Admi Party's (AAP) allegations that BJP is afraid to form govt, Naidu said, ""Why will the BJP be afraid of polls? We have a very good chance of winning in Delhi with full majority."

Even as the Centre on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that the President has given consent to invite the BJP to form the government in Delhi, the court expressed its displeasure and frowned upon the delaying tactics being adopted by the government.
