New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sought a reply from Lt. Governor Anil Baijal asking him whether it was appropriate that copies of files marked by the L-G should reach the BJP before they reach CM.

Kejriwal on Thursday wrote a letter to Baijal after the latter returned a file pertaining to constitution of six wholesale markets to the Delhi government, seeking to know if all rules were followed in nominating members of the market's committees, PTI reported.

Notably, Vijender Gupta, a BJP MLA and the leader of opposition in Delhi Assembly, had on June 13 briefed media about the L-G returning the file related to mandies to the AAP government.

"This file reached my office late last evening (June 13), much after it reached the BJP and the BJP MLA had already made a statement" Kejriwal asked in the letter.

"Does the L-G think it is appropriate that copies of files marked by the LG to CM should reach the BJP before they reach CM?" wrote Kejriwal.

The AAP government had sent the file to the L-G for his approval on formation of committees for the six mandies, said the PTI report.

On Thursday, Gupta had alleged that, "The committees are being formed in violation of rules which lay down that the nominated members could only be agriculturist, traders and qualified commission agents and weighmen."
