Delhi L-G hits out at CM Arvind Kejriwal
Days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal criticised V.K. Saxena in the state Assembly over his alleged “interference in the government’s functioning”
NEW DELHI: Days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal criticised V.K. Saxena in the state Assembly over his alleged "interference in the government's functioning", asking "Who is L-G" and "where did he come from", the Lt Governor in a letter asked the CM to refer to the Constitution for the answer. "It has come to my notice through media reports that you have made many statements in and out of the State Assembly over the past few days, which have been severely and substantively misleading, untrue and derogatory. As to 'who is LG' and 'where did he come from', etc. can be answered, if you were to even cursorily refer to the Constitution of India, others do not deserve a reply, since they obviously cater to a very low level of discourse," the letter read.
The Delhi LG also reacted to the CM's allegation that he refused to meet him while protesting outside the Raj Niwas over the issues of sending teachers to Finland for training. "I came to know through media reports that on Monday, you left the Assembly and were protesting with others outside Raj Niwas, demanding to meet me. Thereafter, I invited you and the Dy. Chief Minister to come and see me. I would have, indeed, loved to have you over and served you lunch as well. However, you chose not to come on the pretext of wanting to meet me with all of your MLAs. You would appreciate that, given the short notice and sudden demand on your part, it would not have been possible to at once have a meeting with 70-80 people, nor would have it served any concrete purpose. Unfortunately, you went ahead to make a convenient political posture that, athe LG refused to meet me", said LG in the letter. (IANS)
