The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to apprise it of the outcome of the political process initiated by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung by writing a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee on the possibility of government formation in Delhi by October 10.

A five-judge constitution bench, headed by justice HL Dattu, asked the Centre to inform it about the decision that the President takes on the L-G's letter.

On Tuesday, Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal threatened to take to the streets to prevent the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from forming a government in Delhi.

Addressing a press conference, Kejriwal said he would take the 'sting video' to the President and request him not to allow L-G to call the BJP to form the government.

The AAP had released a 'sting video' at a press conference on Monday, claiming that senior BJP leader Sher Singh Dagar tried to bribe an AAP legislator to switch sides and help the BJP form a government in the Capital.

HT conducted an online poll and survey and asked readers to give their views on government formation in Delhi.

We asked our readers whether the L-G should call for fresh polls in Delhi after the AAP's allegations of horse-trading.

While 68.67% of the respondents said the L-G should call for elections, 29.93% said he should not and 1.4% respondents had nothing to say on the question.
