Delhi Assembly Dissolved, Fresh Polls likely in Jan-Feb


New Delhi, Nov 04: Paving the way for fresh elections in the national capital, the Union Cabinet on Tuesday approved lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung's report recommending the dissolution of Delhi assembly.

Jung had sent his report on the current political situation to President Pranab Mukherjee and the home ministry recommending the dissolution of the assembly, after meeting the leaders of BJP, Congress and AAP on Monday to find the possibility to form the government in the state.

However, all the parties batted for the fresh elections as no party has majority number to form a stable government in Delhi, which has been under the President's rule since February following Arvind Kejriwal's resignation after 49 days in office.

The Election Commission will now cancel the by-polls to the three assembly constituencies scheduled on November 25.

Now, all the parties will plan out their strategies for the fresh polls, which may take place in January or February next year.
