New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal took a swipe at Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he “is very angry” with L-G Anil Baijal for not being able to create “sufficient obstacles” for the Delhi government.

Kejriwal further added that this was also the reason for former L-G Najeeb Jung being removed from the post 18 months before his tenure was to end. Jung was locked in a prolonged battle with Kejriwal throughout his tenure over various government projects and proposals. Ultimately he quit after 3 years in office and said that he wanted to return to academics.

Since Baijal took over the post as the new L-G of Delhi, he has also had his share of disagreements and logjams with the Kejriwal-led government.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief wrote on Twitter on Tuesday: “I am told PM is very angry wid present LG. PM thinks Mr Baijal not creating sufficient obstacles. Becoz despite all obstacles by LG, Del govt doing phenomenal work for people. Thats the reason Mr Jung was also removed. (sic)”

Tension between the AAP government and LG Baijal intensified earlier this week over the installation of CCTV cameras in Delhi with CM Kejriwal, Delhi cabinet ministers and MLAs sitting on a 'dharna' near the L-G office urging him "not to stall" the project under "pressure from the BJP".

Kejriwal and his colleagues sat on 'dharna' after the police officials deployed at L-G Anil Baijal's office told the chief minister that he and his ministers can meet Baijal but the AAP legislators will not be allowed to go with them.


Last month, Kejriwal had taken up the issue of the national capital staring at an acute power crisis owing to shortage of coal for the power stations.

Apart from writing to PM Modi, the chief minister also wrote to Baijal seeking his intervention in taking up the matter with the central ministries to resolve the crisis-like situation at the earliest.

Kejriwal posted a second tweet saying, “My sources tell me that PM wants LG to do everything possible to stop AAP govt’s good work in education, health, water n electricity. We will not let that happen. Good work will continue. God is wid us. People r wid us. (sic)”

On Saturday, Kejriwal raised a question asking BJP, PM Modi and L-G Baijal if they would stop the Delhi government from working for the people. He was talking about the government opening two bus depots in Rohini.

The chief minister has time and again accused Baijal of “creating obstacles” for the Delhi government.

When the latter recently congratulated students and teachers in Delhi schools for the CBSE results, Kejriwal shot back at him for the removal of Delhi government adviser Atishi Marlena who had contributed immensely towards improving educational facilities at the government-run schools here.
