"My lips are sealed. I cannot talk to you about it. This is between me and the President and I will talk to the President about it," said Jung.
The Lieutenant Governor was replying to a question on the possibility of formation of a new government in the national capital.

He, however, made it clear that Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has not sought fresh election yet.

When asked whether the Aam Aadmi Party has requested him to recommend fresh election in Delhi, Jung said no such proposal has come from the party yet.

"They have not asked for a re-poll in Delhi," he said.

Kejriwal had earlier on Tuesday asked Jung not to dissolve the Delhi Assembly anytime soon, saying it will hold public meetings across the city to know whether the party should form the government again.

However, the Aam Aadmi Party on Wednesday gave up efforts to form a government in Delhi with Kejriwal admitting that chances of returning to power were ‘negligible’ in the current situation and apologised for quitting as the Chief Minister.

When asked about the protests staged by AAP members outside Tihar Jail where Kejriwal has been lodged after his arrest, the Lieutenant Governor said no one should take law in their hands.

The former Delhi chief minister was arrested on Wednesday after he refused to furnish a bail bond of Rs 10,000 in a criminal defamation complaint filed against him by former BJP president Nitin Gadkari.

Commenting on the possibility of bringing Delhi Police under the Delhi government, Jung said, “Till Delhi remains a Union Territory, Delhi Police will remain under the Home Ministry. I have no stand on this".

Meanwhile, Delhi Police Commissioner B S Bassi said 59 people, including AAP leaders Manish Sisodia and Yogendra Yadav, were arrested for violating prohibitory order outside the Tihar Jail on Wednesday.

"We have arrested 59 people including Manish Sisodia and Yogendra Yadav. We will take action if someone breaks the law. There is Section 144 outside Tihar and we have been acting with maximum restraint since yesterday," he said.
