'Kejri diverting attention from misgovernance'

The Congress on Friday accused Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal of diverting attention from governance by creating noise over transfers and postings, while the Delhi BJP said he was showing signs of despotic tendencies.

 “The AAP is talking non-sense by questioning the law and trying to play out a friendly fight with the BJP to divert public attention from serious problems,” said senior Congress leader Chattar Singh.

He said a chief minister in any state should have some say in the postings and transfers of officials but the same rule cannot be completely followed in Delhi as it is a Union Territory. Kejriwal is trying to create  confusion over the central government’s notification demarcating the domains of Lieutenant Governor and the Chief Minister. Soon after the Union Home Ministry issued the gazette notification saying it was not mandatory for the LG to consult the Chief Minister on matters like appointment of bureaucrats, Kejriwal said it showed the nervousness of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Centre over the anti-corruption efforts by his government.

The Delhi BJP said Kejriwal was creating new controversies and preparing to again “run away” from his responsibilities on the “pretext” of constitutional crisis in the national capital. ‘Despotic tendencies’“The way Kejriwal and his government is reacting to the constitutional process and the circular issued by Central Government its seems that he is developing the despotic tendencies,” Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay said.

“Kejriwal’s childish behaviour shows that he cannot fulfil the promises made to the people neither today nor in the next five years and hence he is creating new controversies and preparing to leave the Government on the pretext of constitutional crisis,” he added.

He also said Arvind Kejriwal has the experience of working as a Chief Minister, is well educated and before contesting elections this time he was well aware about the powers of the elected government in Delhi. 

“It is strange that previously Kejriwal resigned on the issue of Lokpal only after one and a half month, this time he is preparing to run away from his responsibility on the pretext of Lieutenant Governor,” he said.
