Indian SC asks BJP, Congress if they would form Delhi government

Update : 07 Mar 2014, 07:44 PM

The Supreme Court in India yesterday asked the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Congress whether they were willing to explore the possibility of forming an alternate government in Delhi.

A bench of the apex court, headed by Justice RM Lodha, issued notice to the parties after it was told that the entire justification for keeping the Delhi assembly under suspended animation was with an eye to possible defections in the existing legislative groups of different political parties in the legislature.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the petitioner, told the court that once the assembly has been placed under suspended animation, it would remain so for a year, depriving people of Delhi a popular democratically elected government, reports Indian news agency IANS.

The move by the court came after the AAP challenged the presidential proclamation of keeping the Delhi assembly in suspended animation.
