New Delhi: Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung is expected to give his report to the Centre today on the follow up action in the wake of resignation of the Aam Aadmi Party Government.
Sources said he would give his report on the situation to the President through the Union Home Ministry for final decision on whether to bring the national capital under a spell of central rule or dissolve the House for holding elections along with Lok Sabha polls as recommended by the outgoing cabinet.
The Lt Governor will send a ‘factual report’ along with resignation of the Government and the Cabinet’s recommendation, the sources said.
Kerjriwal yesterday 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.
Kejriwal had yesterday recommended to the Lt Governor to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh elections.
