Controversy and Kejriwal are made for each other, says BJP

Accusing AAP of "intentionally" creating a Constitutional crisis in Delhi over appointment of Shakuntala Gamlin as acting Chief Secretary for the state, BJP today took a potshot, saying Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and controversy are "made for each other".

Addressing BJP workers at a media workshop, Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said Kejriwal has become "controversywal" from "nautankiwal".
Referring to the recent controversies involving AAP, including its internal strife and row over its ministers in Delhi government, Naqvi took potshot at the Kejriwal-led party saying it wants to remain in controversy.

"Controversy after controversy... and finally now, Jung se jung (fight with Jung). The problem is they (AAP leaders) want to remain in controversy. He (Kejriwal) has become 'controversywal from 'nautankiwal'.

"Earlier, it (AAP) was a nautankiwal party. They would stage dharna, protest... and now he has become controversywal. Controversy each day... controversy and Kejriwal are made for each other," Naqvi quipped.

Referring to the ongoing row triggered by the appointment of the Delhi's top bureaucrat Naqvi said that a "Constitutional crisis" has been created.

"It is a big challenge in Delhi; a Constitutional crisis has been created. They (AAP) are not limited to controversy, they are creating Constitutional crisis (now). And there is an intention behind the Constitutional crisis that AAP is creating. Hence, we will have to be alert towards it for people," he advised party men.

Gamlin's appointment had last week triggered a full-blown war between the ruling AAP and LG Najeeb Jung, with Kejriwal alleging that the Lieutenant Governor was trying to take over the administration.

The AAP had also accused BJP of attempting coup though Lieutenant Governor against the democratically elected government of Delhi with highest ever mandate in the history of the state.
