Delhi govt decides to remove ads
The AAP government on Tuesday removed from several areas posters and hoardings in which it had taken a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to allow it to work.
Last week, the Arvind Kejriwal dispensation had put up the posters and hoardings which were critical of Modi, suggesting the Prime Minister was creating hurdles in its functioning.
“Prime Minister Sir, Please, let Delhi government work,” the posters read. The AAP government had <g data-gr-id="20">came</g> out with similar advertisements on TV channels and radio. The posters and hoardings were put up across the city after Chief Minister Kejriwal shot off a terse letter to Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on July 23, accusing him of acting at the behest of Modi.
The letter was written two days after Jung had struck down <g data-gr-id="19">appointment</g> of Swati <g data-gr-id="16">Maliwal</g> as chief of Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). On Monday, the LG had cleared the file pertaining to Maliwal’s appointment as head of the women’s panel. Earlier, Delhi government had posted an audio clip on social media where Kejriwal appealed to Modi to spare at least one hour every week to improve the city’s “deteriorating” law and order situation or hand over police to the city government.
