New Delhi:  Lt Governor Najeeb Jung is likely to send an invite in the next couple of days to BJP, the single-largest party in the Delhi Assembly to form government in the national capital.

Sources said that as President Pranab Mukherjee has given his clearance, an invite would now be sent to the BJP.

The Centre today told the Supreme Court that President Pranab Mukherjee has given his consent to Jung's proposal to invite BJP to form the government in the national capital.

Jung last month had sent a report to the President seeking permission to invite BJP to form government in Delhi.

In the report, Jung gave a detailed analysis of the political situation and underlined the need to have an elected government in the city which is under President's Rule since

February 17 following resignation of the Aam Aadmi Party government after being in power for 49 days.

The Election Commission on Saturday had announced bypoll to three Assembly constituencies on November 25 but if the Lt Governor dissolves the Assembly then the bypolls will not take place.
