Reacting to the Supreme Court order, the AAP on Tuesday asked why Lt Governor Najeeb Jung did not ask parties to spell out their stand in writing over government formation in the national capital as absense of such a formality was leading to defection.

"Why has the government not asked each of the parties to give a written statement. Let the Lt Governor ask the BJP on Wednesday on whether you are in a position to form a government or whether they exploring the possibilities is more important than than giving the government itself.

"I am afraid it amounts to a political game which is to wage till defections take place. That basically is the name of the game. Its an old game we thought we had put an end to. Its really sickening to see that this game is being played," said senior AAP leader Yogendra Yadav.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked the Centre to take a decision on dissolution of Delhi Assembly "one way or another" within five weeks, questioning it for continuing to keep the house in suspended animation when no party is coming forward to form the government.
