He added that BJP could misuse Lieutenant Governor Najib Jung office to achieve its objective. Delhi has been under President's rule since February when AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal resigned from the post of chief minister after his 49-day-old government failed to table its Jan Lokpal Bill in the state assembly. The assembly has been under suspended animation ever since and no party has staked a claim to form the government. Aug 29, 2014
