Amidst moves for government formation in Delhi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said his party BJP  will take a decision on the issue.

“The party will take a decision,” he told reporters after Union Minister Nitin Gadkari, who is election incharge of party affairs in Delhi, met him at the North Block.

He was replying to reporters on Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung’s report to the Centre recommending calling BJP to form government in the capital.

The Home Minister said the LG’s report has not come to him yet.

However, official sources said  in his report, the LG has sought permission to explore the possibilities of formation of a government by consulting the single largest party, which is BJP with 28 seats in a House of 70. Its ally Akali Dal has one MLA.

After his meeting with the Home Minister, Gadkari said that BJP will not indulge in horse trading.

Senior party leaders feel that the LG should invite the single-largest party.

BJP leader Prabhat Jha, who is BJP vice president and state incharge of Delhi, also met the Home Minister.
