New Delhi: After the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan met with LG Najeeb Jung on Thursday and refused to form government in Delhi, Jung invited Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal to meet him on Saturday for discussion.

Kejriwal is reluctant to form government in Delhi with either the Congress or the BJP after finishing second in the Delhi Assembly polls with 28 seats, and said that AAP is ready to play the role of a responsible Opposition.

With the BJP, which emerged as the single largest party in Delhi Assembly polls, declining to form a government, fresh election in the national capital now looks inevitable.

Vardhan after his meeting with Jung told reporters, "We have conveyed to him that we do not have enough seats and in view of lack of clear mandate, the party would like to sit in the opposition.”

Kejriwal had yesterday made it clear that his party would rather prefer fresh election than forming a government with support from Congress or BJP.
