The buzz on fresh elections in Delhi is getting stronger as the date the Supreme Court gave Centre to clear its stand on formation of a government here remains only a week away.
It is possible that unlike earlier, the Centre would give a decisive reply to the court on October 28. Some senior leaders believe an announcement could be made even sooner.
With elections almost a certainty, many leaders on Tuesday were busy discussing the party’s strategy. While senior leaders are of the view that party will go without naming a CM candidate, as it did in Haryana and Maharashtra, others believe Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan will be brought back into Delhi politics.
A senior leader, however, said, “There is no doubt that we will fight Delhi elections in the name of Narendra Modi. We are sure we will make a comeback with a full majority and the central leadership will appoint a chief minister who will run Delhi efficiently.”
Meanwhile, with senior leader Jagdish Mukhi under fire for speaking of the possibility of a BJP government within this Assembly, others have been told not to express their views on the political situation of Delhi, a source said. Even the Delhi unit chief Satish Upadhyay said he would not comment.
