"There is no over-enthusiasm about forming the government. Right now, the ball is in the Lieutenant Governor's court. Let him decide. We will happily accept any situation that (unfolds)," BJP legislative party leader Harsh Vardhan told reporters in the national capital.
BJP has 32 seats in the 70-member Delhi Assembly.
Lt Governor Najeeb Jung is understood to have suggested that President's rule be imposed in Delhi after rejecting the outgoing AAP government's recommendation that the House be dissolved.
The Kejriwal government resigned on Friday after the Jan Lokpal Bill was blocked in the Assembly by Congress and BJP MLAs.
On being specifically asked whether BJP would accept an invitation by the Lt Governor to form the government, Harsh Vardhan said, "We will discuss. It is a hypothetical question. We will certainly discuss and decide with our senior leaders."     

He added that there is no pressure from party MLAs about forming the government.
Replying on whether the party is in favour of dissolving the House, he said, "Collectively, we are in a situation where no one wants to go to elections within three months."     

He, meanwhile, clarified that the party would not support any group of MLAs in forming the government, saying that, "Delhi's governance can't be taken lightly.”
Harsh Vardhan also hit out at Kejriwal saying that the AAP leader now ‘aspires to become the prime minister’ and is ‘fooling the people’.
