Union Cabinet recommends dissolution of Delhi Assembly
New Delhi: Ending months of uncertainty, the Centre today recommended dissolution of the Delhi Assembly with immediate effect after BJP, AAP and Congress expressed their inability to form a government.
Assembly elections in the national capital are likely to be held early next year.
“The Union Cabinet recommended dissolution of the Delhi Assembly with immediate effect,” a senior Union Minister said after the brief meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
The decision came after the Cabinet considered the report of Delhi Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung in which he had suggested dissolution of the year-old Assembly after his meeting with the BJP, AAP and Congress.
