Delhi Govt Formation: SC supports Efforts of LG Jung

New Delhi, Oct 30: Supporting the positive efforts of Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung to break the deadlock, the Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned the hearing on the government formation in Delhi to November 11.

The apex court will wait and watch till the next hearing for the next step by LG to form the government in the national capital.

The court noted the possibility of formation of minority government, saying a party without majority with an outside support could form the government.

The court also said that if the LG fails to sort out the issue or feels that the formation of the government is not possible, he may seek the advice from the President.

While hearing a petition filed by the AAP, seeking dissolution of the Delhi Assembly and fresh polls in the national capital, the apex court said, "Let us wait for sometime".

Expressing displeasure on the hearing, AAP counsel Prashant Bhushan said that this was another attempt to deny people to have a representative government.

However, he said that the AAP had no objection in giving the LG another chance to explore the possibility of forming the government in Delhi but it should be time bound.
