New Delhi | Congress today took a dig at Lt Governor Najeeb Jung for his recommendation to the President for dissolution of the Delhi Assembly, saying it is better late than never. There is a saying in Farsi ‘der aaye, durust aaye’ (better late than never). This should have happened long back, but the LG in his wisdom, on the advice of the BJP, tried to prolong it.
Wisdom descended upon the LG only after the intervention of the Supreme Court, party General Secretary Shakeel Ahmed, who is in charge of party affairs in Delhi, said when asked about the development.
Ending the eight-month-long political uncertainty, Jung today recommended to the President dissolution of the Delhi Assembly as major players BJP, AAP and Congress have expressed inability to form government and preferred holding of polls. The report by Jung paved the way for holding of fresh polls in the capital which is under President’s Rule since February after the AAP government quit after ruling for 49 days.
