Adding more fire to the controversy over government formation in Delhi, the Aam Aadmi Party released a 'sting video' at a press conference on Monday, claiming that a senior BJP leader in Delhi was caught on tape trying to buy the support of AAP MLAs.
HT conducted an online poll and survery on the incident.
On the poll, we asked the question: In view of AAP's allegations of horse-trading, should the L-G call for fresh polls in Delhi?
68% of respondents said the Lieutenant Governor should call for fresh elections, while 31% said he shouldn't. 2% respondents had nothing to say on the question.
In the survey, we asked 3 questions.
On the first question -- Should BJP form the government in Delhi after initially refusing to do so after the poll results in Dec last year -- 34% of respondents said the BJP should form the government in Delhi, while 63% felt that it shouldn't. 3% had nothing to say on the issue.
On the second question, is it possible for the BJP to form the government in Delhi without horse-trading, 67% of readers felt that BJP could not keep out horse-trading to form the government in Delhi while 26% said it needn't go out buying MLAs. 7% of them had no say on the question.
On the last question on whether there should be fresh assembly polls in Delhi, 70% thought that Delhi needed fresh assembly poll while 30% responded in the negative and 3% had no say on the issue.
The above results are taken from Monday evening.
