“We will tell him that we do not have majority. Also we are not the largest party in the Assembly…We do not favour manipulative politics”

The Aam Aadmi Party has again declared it would not form a government in Delhi as it does not have the majority. AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal is expected to meet Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Saturday to explain his stand.

Party leader Yogendra Yadav told the media on Friday the party did not have the number; it was against the “manipulative” politics of “deal-making” for government formation.

The Congress wrote to the Lieutenant Governor on Friday, offering “unconditional support” to the AAP should it be willing to form a government. Delhi BJP chief Vijay Goel said his party would provide “constructive cooperation” to an AAP government.

Professor Yadav said: “We’re going to meet the LG at 10:30 a.m. We’ll tell him we don’t have a majority. Also, we’re not the largest party…. We’ll put before him all these views. We don’t favour manipulative politics.”

Mr. Jung invited Mr. Kejriwal to discuss the formation of a government after the BJP, the single largest party in last week's election, informed him on Thursday it did not have the numbers.
