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