Kejri's ' Jung' on Centre escalates.

A FULL- BLOWN war has erupted with the Delhi Legislative Assembly passing a resolution against the Centre's notification conferring more powers on the Lieutenant Governor ( L- G).

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led a blistering attack on the L- G and accused him of dancing to the tune of the central government.

" A very dangerous situation has been created in Delhi. There is a big conspiracy hatched by the Centre to defame and destabilise the AAP government. This is the first experiment of the BJP towards imposing dictatorship. One by one, this experiment would be implemented in every non- BJP state,"Kejriwal said. He said he would write to all non- BJP chief ministers to come together and unite on this issue.

After passing the resolution by voice vote, Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said the resolution will be forwarded directly to the President along with the Union home minister and the L- G. As a matter of practice, a resolution is sent to the L- G who forwards it to the President.

The last day of the session saw vociferous protests from the BJP MLAs who led by Vijender Gupta twice walked out of the Assembly.

There were frequent altercations between the Treasury and Opposition benches as Gupta accused not have issued this notification.

Had the L- G dared to interfere in her business, the Centre would have sacked him within 24 hours,"Kejriwal said while concluding the twoday special Assembly session.

" Why did the Centre not remove Jung when governors in all non- BJP states were changed. The Centre wanted a man who could create hurdles for the AAP government,"the Speaker of acting in a partisan manner.

Kejriwal alleged the BJP was using L- G Najeeb Jung and Delhi Police to avenge the humiliating defeat in the February Assembly polls. " Had Kiran Bedi been the chief minister, the BJP would CM alleged the BJP was using L- G Najeeb Jung and Delhi Police to avenge the humiliating defeat in the Assembly polls

Kejriwal charged.

He alleged that slums in Delhi are being demolished on Jung's instructions so people agitate against the AAP government.

The CM said the notice granting more powers to the L- G in appointing bureaucrats and matters relating to police and public was issued, as the Centre wanted to defame the AAP government.
