"The LG will first explore all options of government formation. As of now, the home ministry has no role in it," Shinde told reporters.

He was responding to a question on the possibility of imposition of President's rule in Delhi after the results of the Assembly elections where no party got absolute majority.

Sources said the LG is expected to call the single largest party BJP, which along with its partner Akali Dal's one seat has 32 MLAs, to know whether it is ready to form a new government.

If the BJP declines to form the government due to the lack of majority in the 70-member House, the LG then may ask the second largest party - the Aam Admi Party which bagged 28 seats -- whether it is in a position to form the government.

Sources said even though both BJP and AAP had declared that it would not stake claim of forming the government, the LG will individually talk to leaders of the two parties Harsh Vardhan and Arvind Kejriwal respectively.

After that the LG will send a report to the home ministry for future course of action.

If the LG suggests for President's rule, the home ministry will move to the Union Cabinet and the Cabinet, if convinces with the LG's suggestions, will recommend for President's rule by keeping the Assembly under suspended animation.
