Modi is free to take revenge on me, but should not hamper the good work done by parliamentary secretaries, says Kejriwal
GN Bureau | June 15, 2016
Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal today attacked the Centre saying that when the BJP appointed parliamentary secretaries it was legal and constitutional, but when AAP does the same, it's illegal and unconstitutional.
He said that the parliamentary secretaries were doing wonderful work and that they were not taking money for it. Kejriwal said that the US is also praising the development work in Delhi but the Centre refuses to acknowledge it and instead tends to create hurdles.
The CM said that the parliamentary secretaries were monitoring the functions of schools, the power supply, and other civic issues by personally visiting the spots. This all was creating an environment in which people’s problems were being addressed to by the government.
Kejriwal pulled out documents to make his point that previous governments too had indulged in this practice. He added that Modi is free to take revenge on him but he should not hamper the good work that the parliamentary secretaries are doing for Delhi’s development. He also alleged that the Congress government led by Sheila Dikshit had also appointed parliamentary secretaries.
Kejriwal addressed a six-minute press conference and refused to take questions. The conference took place following the controversy over the appointment of 21 AAP MLAs as parliamentary secretaries.
