Sit-in by AAP, BJP calls it ‘drama company’

New Delhi, June 12: As the sit-in protest by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his three Cabinet colleagues at the Lt. Governor’s office here entered its second day on Tuesday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and the opposition BJP traded charges. While AAP leaders accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led Central government of disrupting the work of the Delhi government, the BJP alleged that the AAP was spreading canards to hide the failures of its government.

Addressing the media here, AAP leader and Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said the IAS officers and the LG are puppets of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

“The LG can be a puppet, but the mastermind is Modiji on whose orders all the works of the Delhi government have been stopped.

“Why Kejriwal is sitting inside the LG office for past 20 hours? He is not demanding anything for himself but for the people of Delhi,” Singh said.He also alleged that the Central government was against the AAP government in Delhi. “For the past three years, they (BJP) are working against us. They are unable to digest their defeat at our hands in Delhi. (IANS)
