Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday asserted that there was no problem with Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, saying that the latter is a ‘good man with bad political bosses and is only following the orders of Prime Minister Office (PMO).’
“Congress n BJP both demanding Sh Najeeb Jung’s removal? Strange. Is he at fault? No. He is doin what PMO is asking him to do. Removing him will not help. His successor wud also do same if PMO kept interfering. Real solution is PMO shud stop interfering in Delhi (sic),” Kejriwal said in a series of tweets.
“Sh Najeeb Jung is a good man with bad political bosses,” he added.
Earlier, the Congress Party had called for the removal of the Lt. Governor, saying that the latter has undermined the federal basis of the constitution and is not fit to occupy the post.
“The Lieutenant Governor has completely undermined the federal basis of the constitution. He has completely acted as an agent of the central government,” said Congress leader Manish Tewari.
“He is not fit to occupy this position. The sooner he is removed, the better is for India’s federalism,” he added.
Earlier, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MP Udit Raj had on yesterday described Najeeb Jung as a ‘ Super King’ and called for his removal.
