Several decisions of AAP govt. in Delhi have been declared Null or turned down by lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung in the past 18 months. Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday said that the fight was not between the LG and him, but with farmers, advocates, women and Delhiites.
In a tweet on Sunday, Kejriwal said: “It has become LG vs farmers, LG vs advocates, LG vs women, LG vs Delhiites.” Responding to a remark that a “LG vs CM” battle was taking place in Kejriwal said that the court’s decision could not be implemented retrospectively and, by constantly undermining the state government and overturning its decisions, the LG was leading the city into chaos.
The president of the gramin morcha, Rajiv Sansanwal, said, “Farmers would have received from Rs 1 crore to Rs 3.5 crore as compensation for their land as per the proposal. Delhi, he said: “No. There is no LG vs CM. CM is too small a person and has no personal interests.”
Ever since the Delhi High Court ruled on August 4 that the Lt Governor is the supreme administrative authority in Delhi, Jung has gone about spiking many decisions taken by the Kejriwal government in the past 18 months.
