Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday took another dig at Lieutenant Governer Najeeb Jung and said that the latter had sold his soul to Narendra Modi in the hopes of becoming the Vice President. Kejriwal has been at loggerheads with both Jung and PM Modi ever since he came into power. Earlier, a three-member committee appointed by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had found several “irregularities” in the decisions taken by the CM Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government prior to the Delhi High Court’s August 4 judgement and this may lead to scrapping away of a few more decisions.
Earlier, Aam Aadmi Party today intensified its attack on L-G Najeeb Jung, calling him a “spokesperson of BJP” after he rejected the Delhi government’s advice to dissolve the Shunglu Committee, which is examining 400 files on decisions taken by the Arvind Kejriwal regime. The Kejriwal government had advised Jung to dissolve the Shunglu Committee, which is examining 400 files on decisions taken by the AAP regime, but he turned down the request and gave the panel a six-week extension.
नजीब जंग ने उप राष्ट्रपति बनने के लिए अपनी आत्मा को मोदी को बेच दिया। पर मोदी कभी मुस्लिम को उप राष्ट्रपति नहीं बनाएँगे,जंग जो मर्ज़ी कर लें

Jung had formed the committee chaired by Shunglu on August 30 and ex-chief election commissioner N Gopalaswami and ex-chief vigilance commissioner Pradeep Kumar are also its members. In a three-page press statement, Jung wondered why the AAP government is “afraid” of the truth coming out if everything, as claimed by its ministers, is as per rules. Besides Kejriwal had also accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of informing his associates about demonetisation drive even before it had been announced. Kejriwal is already facing a civil and a criminal defamaton case filed by Finance Minister Arun Jaitley.
