Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung on Thursday invited Bharatiya Janata Party’s chief ministerial candidate Harsh Varshan to explore the possibility of forming a government.
“Harsh Vardhan is currently in Raipur to attend the swearing-in ceremony of Raman Singh as chief minister of Chhattisgarh. He is likely to meet the Lt. Governor this evening,” said a statement from the LG Office.
The BJP has emerged as the single largest party in the Delhi assembly elections with 31 seats, but it fell short of a clear majority in the 70-member assembly. The Aam Aadmi Party got 28 seats.
Harsh Vardhan had told IANS Wednesday that he had been invited by the Lt Governor.
