Congress on Friday said that the moves aimed at allowing BJP to take a shot at power in Delhi showed that the ruling party has lost confidence of going in for fresh polls because of the “inept performance” of the Central government.
“The BJP was the single largest party when the result was declared. What has changed since then and now is that they have lost the confidence of going to the people because of the inept performance of the central government,” party leader Manish Tewari said.
His remarks came after Lt Governor Najeeb Jung sent a report to President Pranab Mukherjee seeking permission to call the single largest party to take a shot at power in Delhi, though it is well short of majority in the Assembly.

In his report, Jung gave a detailed analysis of the political situation in the national capital and underlined the need to have an elected government here which is under President’s rule since February 17 following resignation of the Aam Aadmi Party Government which was in power for 49 days.
BJP had won 31 seats in the 70-member Assembly but the number of BJP MLAs came down to 28 as three party legislators Harsh Vardhan, Ramesh Bidhuri and Pervesh Verma had resigned from the Assembly after they were elected to Lok Sabha.
The Aam Aadmi Party had won 28 seats in its debut Assembly elections and had later formed the government with outside support from Congress’ eight MLAs.
