Meet on pollution cancelled
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday had to cancel a Cabinet meeting which was scheduled to deliberate on measures to control pollution, following the detention of his deputy Manish Sisodia when he was going to meet the family of an ex-serviceman who committed suicide over the issue of One Rank One Pension (OROP).
All the Cabinet ministers were scheduled to discuss a plan to deal with air pollution at 4 pm, but the meeting had to be cancelled in view of the situation that prevailed following the suicide of the 70-year-old ex-serviceman. Kejriwal said: “We are having to postpone the Cabinet meeting. Why? Because the Centre has resorted to hooliganism.” The entire day witnessed high drama when the Deputy CM went to meet family members of Ram Kishan Grewal at RML Hospital here and was detained.
