Sit-in by Ke­jri­wal at L-G of­fice en­ters third day

The Hitavada - - NATION -

AS the sit-in by Chief Min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal and three min­is­ters over IAS of­fi­cers’ “strike” en­tered its third day, Deputy CM Man­ish Siso­dia on Wed­nes­day be­gan an in­def­i­nite strike and the AAP vowed to con­tinue its strug­gle af­ter its lead­ers and MLAs marched to the L-G of­fice.

Lt Gov­er­nor Anil Bai­jal met Union Home Sec­re­tary Ra­jiv Gauba to­day to dis­cuss the po­lit­i­cal sit­u­a­tion in the na­tional cap­i­tal as Ke­jri­wal and min­is­ters have stayed put at the wait­ing room of L-G Sec­re­tar­iat over their de­mands since Mon­day evening.

Bai­jal did not come to his of­fice for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive day, sources said. Ke­jri­wal al­leged on Twit­ter that the BJP-led cen­tral govern­ment was us­ing IAS of­fi­cers as a “tool” to pro­voke “re­bel­lion against an elected Govern­ment”.

Mean­while, to counter Ke­jri­wal and his Min­is­ters’ sit-in, BJP lead­ers and rebel AAP leg­is­la­tor Kapil Mishra also sat on a dharna at the chief min­is­ter’s of­fice against the “non-per­for­mance” of the AAP dis­pen­sa­tion.
