New Delhi: A day after Delhi elections threw up a hung assembly, social activist and former IPS officer Kiran Bedi said that the onus to provide good governance in Delhi is on both the BJP and AAP even though both parties are nowhere near the majority mark. Bedi appealed to leaders of both BJP and AAP to come together and find a middle way to end the suspense in Delhi.

She said that it is very unfair for Delhi to not get a stable government and if no party stakes the claim there will be no choice but to go for another election.

She said that both parties should form a new type of government by joining hands together. "Coming together of BJP and AAP will be a respect of the voters' mandate. BJP and AAP should talk to each other. The voters want both BJP and AAP and Delhi needs a good government," she said.

However, AAP rejected Bedi's offer to work with BJP. AAP leaders including Arvind Kejriwal have made it clear that they will sit in the opposition. Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia said that AAP will not support any party which tries to form the government. They also ruled out the possibility of seeking support of any party for government formation.
