Earlier Lt Governor Jung sent a report to President Pranab Mukherjee on the political situation in Delhi in the wake of resignation of the Aam Aadmi Party Government. He also also forwarded the resignation of AAP government to the President along with the report. Sources said the Lt Governor has sent a “factual report” on the situation in the national capital and has not mentioned whether it be put under a spell of central rule or dissolve the House for holding elections along with Lok Sabha polls.

The AAP government Friday had recommended to the Lt Governor to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh elections. Mr Kerjriwal on Friday resigned as Delhi Chief Minister shortly after his government was defeated on the issue of tabling of the Janlokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly in the face of a united resistance by outside supporter Congress and opposition BJP.
