As per reports, the general view among senior leaders was that there should be fresh election, though there were suggestions for taking opinions of the party MLAs as well.

The sources said though most of the BJP MLAs are reluctant to go to polls, they have already been told to start preparing for fresh elections.
A senior Delhi BJP leader said there is a possibility of election taking place in February next year as President`s rule can continue for one year.
