PM wants to reverse our decisions; they will arrest Maliwal, says CM
Launching a fresh attack at the LG and the Centre, Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi wants to reverse numerous decisions of the AAP government through Najeeb Jung and remove DCW chief Swati Maliwal who, he claimed, will be “arrested” soon.
On Friday, Lieutenant- Governor Najeeb Jung said that he was in the process of overturning “illegal decisions” taken by the AAP government.
Kejriwal’s outburst on the microblogging site Twitter came a day after Jung said that he was in the process of overturning and rectifying “illegal decisions” taken by the AAP government following the August 4 Delhi high court verdict.
Kejriwal claimed the Lieutenant Governor and the Centre wanted to “reverse” numerous decisions of public importance, including the decision to increase minimum wages and holding discoms accountable for unscheduled outages, among other measures. He said Najeeb Jung was “subverting” democracy to protect his “chair”.
On the CAG row, the Delhi Chief Minister said the auditor “vehemently refuses” to audit advertisement expenses of Centre and other states.
“Why? CAG under pressure from BJP?,” he questioned.
“Sources-LG n PMO hell bent on removing Swati Maliwal 4 doing gud job. She’ll be arrested coming week n then removed,” Kejriwal claimed in another tweet. “LG hell bent on removing the team which made mohalla clinics and saved money on flyovers.” “Increase minimum wages in Delhi. Is it illegal? Sources: Big companies met Modiji n opposed it. Now LG sitting on that file.”
“Hold power cos accountable- make them pay compensation for unscheduled power cuts. Is it illegal? LG sitting on it.” “AAP govt asked for land for 10 hospitals from DDA. Modi’s LG refused. Was our demand illegal?” were the CM’s series of tweets.
Referring to Jung’s statement that he has tried to keep his intervention in the government restricted to the bare minimum, Kejriwal said, “If this is ‘least interference’, then what is ‘high interference’? Shameful subversion of democracy to protect chair.”
“Guys. Can u name 1 positive thing that Modiji or his LG did for Delhi so far? Only created hurdles. Negative people.”
“Essence of Indian democracy so far. Thats why both parties (BJP and Congress) are jointly opposing AAP everywhere tooth and nail,” the AAP chief said.
