New Delhi: After lashing out at Lt Governor alleging that he will call BJP to form the government, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) National Convener Arvind Kejriwal will meet Najeeb Jung on Monday, sources said.

"Arvind had sought an appointment of Lt Governor yesterday, but was told that the appointment was only possible on Monday. Now that he has been given time, he will meet the Lt Governor," said a party source.


Yesterday, Kejriwal had sought an appointment of Jung and alleged he was going to invite the BJP to form the government in Delhi.


"Sources (claim)- Despite public outcry, LG likely to invite BJP to form government today. BJP will accept it...BJP still does not have nos. Sources - 6 Congress MLAs not yet ready. BJP`s assessment - After taking oath, it would become easier to buy MLAs...


"Would LG save his chair or the constitution - nation will keenly watch. If a party (BJP) has once already declined the offer to form govt - can the LG invite the same party in the existing Vidhan Sabha again? ... Shouldn`t LG first ask for a list of supporting MLAs? Else wouldn`t LG be seen to be acting partisan?" Kejriwal had said in a series of tweets.


He had also said that would Jung encourage horse trading if he invites the BJP for government formation.


"Would LG encourage horse trading if he invites a party to form govt despite knowing that they don`t have nos? Questions - can LG invite a party to form govt without prima facie satisfying himself whether the party has nos?" Kejriwal tweeted.
