There were no com­ments on the meet­ing forth­com­ing ei­ther from Rash­tra­p­ati Bha­van or AICC. It co­in­cided with the con­sti­tu­tional cir­cles in Delhi won­der­ing whether the Pres­i­dent would in­vite leader of the largest party — as done by Shankar Dayal Sharma in 1996 — to form the govern­ment, in case of a hung House, or stick to the prece­dent set by Sharma’s pre­de­ces­sors —
