Kejriwal is expected to meet the Lieutenant Governor at 12: 30 pm to apprise him about the party’s decision.    

Noting that AAP’s week-long public referendum on whether it should form a government with the support of Congress was overwhelmingly positive, Kejriwal on Sunday said he would meet the Lieutenant Governor after a meeting of the party's Political Affairs Committee (PAC).

Kejriwal, whose one-year-old party had its roots in the anti-corruption movement, said a final decision on government formation will be announced on Monday after analyzing the results of the week-long referendum through SMS, IVRS and email and from the public meetings conducted over the weekend.

"Though we have got the overwhelming participation of people during the public meetings and about 80 percent of them have favoured that party should form the government but the final decision would be taken after a meeting of Political Affairs Committee,” he said.

Asked whether he would be able to live up to the promises made in the manifesto, Kejriwal said the party would fulfill the ‘strong manifesto’, which was prepared in consultation with experts.

The AAP leader said that some of the things which are in the manifesto can be implemented ‘within hours’ of forming the government and it would be done. An order for audit of accounts of power distribution companies and issues relating to water is stated to be high on the Aam Aadmi Party’s agenda.

Kejriwal held four public meetings in his New Delhi Assembly constituency, and at all places majority of people gave their go-ahead to form the government.

The deadlock over government formation in Delhi continued for nearly two weeks after the announcement of the results on December 8.  AAP has 28 seats while Congress with eight in a House of 70 has agreed to give outside support. The BJP, which finished as the largest group with 31 seats, decided not to form a government after falling short of the half-way mark by five.
