The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today again attacked the BJP for its silence over imposition of Presidents rule in Delhi and asked the party to spell its stand over the issue.

"It is surprising that the BJP, which is levelling wild allegations on the AAP leadership, is itself afraid to spell out its stand," said a statement issued by the party.

"Whether the people of Delhi should be subjected to an indirect rule of the Congress-led UPAs Central government or should they be allowed to exercise their democratic and constitutional right of electing a new government," the statement said.

When the Arvind Kejriwal led AAP government resigned on February, it recommended fresh elections in the city-state. However, the Congress-led Centre has imposed President's Rule in Delhi. The BJP is yet to make its stand over the issue on whether it supports the Assembly in suspended animation or fresh elections.

"When no party is in a position to form a government in Delhi, why is the BJP not demanding dissolution of the assembly" the statement added.

It also attacked the BJP for not opposing the discontinuation of relief in electricity tariffs when Delhi's interim budget was presented in the Parliament.
