Kejriwal has often claimed that PM Narendra Modi is directing Baijal to create problems for Kejriwal government, although Kejriwal could never substantiate his claims.

The office of the Lt. Governor (LG) of Delhi Anil Baijal claimed Monday that chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has threatened the LG on the issue of bureaucrats’ strike.

In a communication, the LG office said that Kejriwal – along with his minister Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai – had intimidated Baijal to call government officers at LG office and issue directions for ending their ‘unofficial’ strike.

The bureaucrats including IAS officers have not been interacting with Kejriwal government after an alleged assault on Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash in February at Kejriwal’s residence. They are demanding Kejriwal’s apology for the said attack on Delhi Government’s top bureaucrat.

Meanwhile, Kejriwal and his ministers are sitting on a dharna since Monday in LG office. They are demanding the end of bureaucrats’ strike among other approvals from Baijal, while the LG office has stated that the dharna is “without any reason.”

“There is no strike by employees of Delhi Government and in his continued interactions with officers, it has been informed that the atmosphere of mistrust and fear continues and no sincere attempts to resolve the differences have been made so far (by Kejriwal),” Baijal’s office said.

LG continued to advise Kejriwal to build the confidence of the employees at all levels and to work out ways of addressing their genuine concerns, the LG office statement added.

Kejriwal has often claimed that Prime Minister (PM) of India Narendra Modi is directing Baijal to create problems for Kejriwal government, although Kejriwal could never substantiate his claims.

Failures of Kejriwal

But why is Kejriwal resorting to such unruly behavior? Answer: Kejriwal and his ministers as well as party colleagues are mostly uneducated, inexperienced, or goons who do not understand the ABC’s of governance.

Since AAP government has failed on all fronts, Kejriwal is blaming Baijal and Modi for his own failures. In the process, he is trying to hoodwink the voters by saying that Baijal is not allowing him to work.

However, most people believe that in just 3 years, Kejriwal and AAP have caused such a damage to Delhi that now it will take it almost 30 years to recover from the ruins.

Today, Delhi is among the most polluted and the dirtiest cities of the world, corruption is rampant in every street of Delhi while Kejriwal government never tried to control it.

Similarly, the education standards – particularly in Delhi schools – are going from bad to worse while Kejriwal has no interest in improving the quality of education. Rather, Kejriwal and his party colleagues are making false claims about Delhi school education.

While Kejriwal is going gaga over the hyped performance of his Mohalla Clinics, people in Delhi complain about the uselessness of such a flawed health care concept.

People told RMN News Service that mostly these so-called community health care centres are locked and when they open they fail to provide proper medical treatment.

During the past couple of years, Kejriwal and AAP have only been blaming the LG for their own failures. The party released an annual report card of LG Baijal in the beginning of this year in which it said that the LG office has failed to discharge its duties in all administrative areas, while Baijal is always looking for cheap photo ops.
