“I am told the Prime Minister is very angry with the present L-G.
New Delhi: Chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday claimed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi was “very angry” with lieutenant-governor (L-G) Anil Baijal as he was not creating sufficient obstacles for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government.
“I am told the Prime Minister is very angry with the present L-G. The Prime Minister thinks Baijal is not creating sufficient obstacles because despite all the obstacles by the L-G, the Delhi government is doing phenomenal work for the people,” Mr Kejriwal tweeted.
“That is the reason Jung was also removed,” he added, referring to Mr Baijal’s predecessor Najeeb Jung who resigned as lieutenant-governor of Delhi in December 2016.
“My sources tell me that the Prime Minister wants the L-G to do everything possible to stop AAP government’s good work in education, health, water, and electricity. We will not let that happen. Good work will continue. God is with us. People are with us,” Mr Kejriwal further said.
The CM also said that voting for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) will lead to changes in the names of cities and railway stations whereas voting for AAP will help improve children’s future.
Referring to the renaming of the Mughalsarai railway station in Uttar Pradesh to Deen Dayal Upadhyay Junction, Mr Kejriwal tweeted: “If you vote for BJP, the name of cities and stations will change. Voting for AAP will change the future of your children.”
Reportedly, Deen Dayal Upadhyay, the co-founder of the Bharatiya Jana Sangh, the forerunner to BJP, was found dead on a rail track near the Mughalsarai railway station in 1968.
Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia also said that future generations will benefit if the government works on changing the condition of government schools instead of names of cities.
