Talking to reporters, AAP leader Yogendra Yadav yet again clarified that the party does not have any majority in the House for government formation. "We will explain this very stand to Lieutenant-Governor," he said.

"AAP has received an official invitation from the Lt-Governor. Arvind will be meeting him at 10:30 am and put forward party's stand," Yadav said.

The AAP leader further said: "AAP is neither the single largest party nor does it believe in horse trading. We will present all the facts before the Lieutenant-Governor tomorrow."

The invitation came shortly after BJP's chief ministerial candidate Harsh Vardhan declined to form the government, saying that his party did not have a majority, despite being the single-largest party.
