"At present, we are in the process of appointing our legislature party leader. Soon, BJP will announce his name," Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay told reporters.
Asked if BJP is going to form government, Upadhay said that as of now, "L-G has not invited us (BJP) in this regard.
"If L-G first invites us to form the government, we will then explore all options. I have already said that all options are open in this regard. BJP will follow all constitutional norms as a political party needs to form government," Upadhyay added.
The Delhi BJP chief, however, added that at present, there is no situation to form government.
