Jung in tussle with Delhiites: Kejriwal
Amid the escalating confrontation between the Delhi government and Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday alleged that Jung was not in a tussle with him but with the entire city, farmers and women.
Kejriwal’s comments came a day after he appealed to Jung not to cancel the public welfare decisions taken by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government since it came to power in February 2015.
"It has become LG vs farmers, LG vs advocates, LG vs women, LG vs Delhiites," Kejriwal said in a tweet on Sunday.
In response to a remark that a "LG vs CM" battle was also on, Kejriwal responded, "No. There is no LG vs CM. CM is too small a person and has no personal interests".
In reply to another query by a Twitter user whether Jung would have acted the way he has had there been a CM from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the national Capital, Kejriwal remarked: "Good question."
The Chief Minister had on Saturday accused the Centre of starting a process to declare "null and void" all the decisions taken by the AAP-led Delhi government's in the last one-and-a-half-year through the Lt Governor.
