President's rule in Delhi

IANS  |  New Delhi 

The union cabinet Saturday decided to impose president's rule in following the resignation of chief minister Kejriwal and his council of ministers Friday. The assembly will now be kept in suspended animation.

Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had earlier recommended that be placed under president's rule by keeping the legislature under suspended animation.

The 49-day old Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government resigned Friday over the failure to table the Jan Lokpal bill in the assembly. The bill was a poll promise of the AAP.

The AAP had recommended to Jung to dissolve the assembly and hold fresh polls.

An official notification is likely to be issued Sunday.
