is imposed, then the Lt Governor will run the government with the help of a group of advisors.

Sources said Lt Governor held consultations with number of experts on the current scenario.

Meanwhile, Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde said the onus is on BJP as the single largest party followed by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to form the new government. He said the Centre will not interfere in the present logjam.

"What can we do? We will have to wait and watch.... We cannot do anything. Whatever is to be done, has to be done by the two parties (BJP and AAP)," Shinde said when asked about government formation in Delhi.

Responding to questions at his monthly press conference, Shinde said his Ministry has not received any communication from the office of the Delhi LG on the subject.

"The Delhi LG office has only sent resignation of the former Chief Minister (Sheila Dikshit)," he said. Earlier in the day, Kejriwal termed as personal reported comments by party leader Prashant Bhushan that AAP may consider supporting BJP.

"There is no question of supporting BJP. What Prashant said yesterday was his personal opinion," he tweeted.

Bhushan had last night told a TV channel that AAP may consider supporting BJP if the party gives AAP in writing that it will pass the Jan Lokpal Bill.

The noted lawyer himself clarified today that what he had said last night was in a rhetorical context.

"What I said was in a rhetorical context. I meant that if BJP becomes like AAP and does those things which AAP has been formed for and AAP believes in, then we can think of supporting them.

"But this is not possible because these parties can never become like AAP," he told reporters today.
