New Delhi, December 15:  Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Saturday sought 10 days time from Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung to take a decision regarding government formation in Delhi.

AAP chief along with party members Manish Sisodia and Kumar Vishwas met Mr. Najeeb Jung on Saturday.

“We have asked for 10 days time to take decision on the matter,” AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal told media persons outside the Lt Governor’s residence. “We have written a letter to Sonia Gandhi. We have also written a letter to Rajnath Singh,” said Mr. Kejriwal.

“We did not ask for your support. What is their intention? What is in their mind?” he said while referring to the BJP and Congress.

Mr. Kejriwal said that the Congress as well as the BJP should make their “stand clear” on 18 issues that they have raised. Earlier, Mr Kejriwal had given to Mr Jung the copies of the letters he had written to Congress President Sonia Gandhi and BJP President Rajnath Singh seeking their views on a list of 18 issues that included ending VIP culture in the capital, audit of electricity companies and removal of the MLA local funds scheme.

Mr. Jung invited AAP after the BJP declined the offer to form the government in the State as they didn’t have a majority. BJP secured 31 seats and fell short of a clear majority in the 70-member house.

AAP obtained 28 seats in the Delhi Assembly elections. The Congress, which bagged eight seats, said they are ready to give unconditional outside support to the AAP.
