New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Gopal Rai maintained that the proposed meeting today, between AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal and Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung, was aimed at putting an end to the political uncertainty prevailing in the city.

“We will mainly discuss about the political uncertainty and horsetrading that is prevalent here must be stopped. Three parties have almost confirmed to the LG they being poll ready and that the Delhi Assembly must be dissolved and polls be held.

Therefore, in this situation the assembly must be dissolved and Delhi gets an elected popular government comes in place and takes up people friendly work,” Rai said.

“Yes, definitely we will discuss on all issues openly. The only way to stop such malpractices is to dissolve the assembly,” Rai added.

Kejriwal, is meeting Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung today along with his 25 MLAs to ask the latter for a withdrawal of President’s rule from the capital by convincing Jung to dissolve the assembly and call for fresh polls.

This meeting comes in the backdrop of AAP accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of running away from fresh elections after the BJP state unit said the central leadership would take a final decision and was open to all three options-fresh elections, staking claim to government formation and extending President’s rule.
