Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung on Saturday recommended President’s rule in Delhi. He recommended that the Assembly must be kept in suspended animation. A final decision will now be taken by President Pranab Mukherjee on the advice sought by the Union Ministry of Law and Justice.

Earlier on Saturday, 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.

Jung has 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 national capital should be put under a spell of central rule or dissolve the House for holding elections along with Lok Sabha polls.

The AAP government yesterday had recommended to the Lt Governor to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh elections.

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.

Jung had advised the Assembly against transacting the Jan Lokpal Bill which he said should have prior clearance of central government.

    Its strange and shocking to hear on Z news TV channel., that all sorts of hypothetical questions are being raised and discussed.Following points need to be seen:1.AAP, had the biggest agenda to get the Janlokpal Bill ped. When this Bill was not allowed to get even tabled in the Delhi embly, what option was left to AAP, but to resign?2.BJP and Congress, took false pretax of the letter of LG/wrongly interpreting the Consution, and did not want the Bill to proceed.These parties did not want the jalokpal bill to get through, as their many Leaders are going to be involved in scams etc.3.There was no self interest of any of the leaders of AAP in Politics. AAP got birth out of frustration when no efforts or Dharna or Fasts etc, could move the Govt, to take serious steps to eradicate corruption.4dia is among the top ten most Saddest Countries of the World.What a shame?5 Corruption also, India, is among the top few countries.What a shame?6 last 66 years after independence, most of the people could not get even adequate drinking water, power, two times meals, little house, and small job to survive contrast, an, which started its journey with India around 1947 after 2 nd World war, has gone far ahead than India. How? Just because an, modified its existing systems, and due to innovations, and by boosting patriotic spirits among its countrymen.All the gains from the progress made in India, have been wiped out by the Corruption.7.Many tainted MPs/Minister, are there in Congress and BJP.There seems no plan to expel these tainted persons from the Parties, and there is no guarantee coming from Congress and BJP, that in the coming general Election , there shall be no tainted person contesting election.8.Aadhar Card scheme has been a great failure, wasting huge amount running in thousands of Croresof rupees.Who is responsible for this great loss?9.The Bharat-IV Petrol is not yet made available in Most of the cities of India, by the petroleum Minister Mr.V Moily, while the of Euro-IV cars is being on, without ensuring availability of its recommended petrol-Bharat-IV petrol.The Customers are being cheated. Why so?10.TV News channels are just adding fuel to the fire, by showing programs on hypothetical questions like: Is Kejriwakl a Bagora, Is kejriwal has pla Hit and run game, Has Kejriwal resigned to gain inLoksabha election etc.What a sense of social responsibility being demonstared by news Channels?They just want to keep people busy and want to run their channels going on, without bothering as to what impact their programs shall have on the people/country.Is this the responsibility of News channels?Hope, like minded and country loving people shall rise to the occasion and shall do their best to lead the Nation on the path of speediest progress and make India Corruption Free at the earliest.A.Bhatia

              Biggest incompetent buffoon and a fraudster and all who follow these nincoms. A vote for AAP counts as a wasted opportunity to bring change. AK is a pencil pushing clerk nothing more, so expecting governance from this party is like expecting brain surgery from a mochi.
