Harsh Vardhan is greeted after he was elected as Delhi BJP Legislative Party leader in New Delhi on Tuesday.

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.
