The Congress’s grip over Delhi loosened by the time the legislative assembly elections were held in 2013. The rise of newly formed Aam Aadmi Party gained the attention of the people. This reflected in the results of 2013 assembly elections that were held in December 2013. Although there was no clear majority, this election swept the power from the 15 year Congress regime to the nascent Aam Aadmi Party. The Aam Aadmi wave did have its effect on the people of Delhi and their expectations amplified due to the promises made by the new government. This was even viewed as the starting point of effective governance. But the AAP government began to loose its momentum as the party members were unable to fulfil the mandates on which they were elected on. This situation grew to great heights and the government was unable to take control of it. Eventually, Aam Aadmi Party chief Arvind Kejriwal chose to resign and the nation’s capital went under governor’s rule.The Bhartiya Janta Party which won 33 seats in 2013 assembly elections told the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung that it will be unable to from the government. According to the PTI report sent by the Governor to the President Pranab Mukherjee, the lieutenant Governor has recommended the dissolution of Delhi Assembly.
