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,” Kejriwal says.

The chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal said today that the lieutenant governor (LG) Najeeb Jung has sold his soul to India’s Prime Minister (PM) Narendra Modi.

Kejriwal was venting out his anger on Jung because the latter is calling the shots in Delhi while Kejriwal has been relegated to a mere figurehead role after a recent court order.

Of late, the Delhi High Court has clarified that Delhi is a union territory and Najeeb Jung is its administrative head.

In the perpetual conflict between the bureaucrat and the politician, the people of Delhi are suffering. Most believe that if LG has to manage the government affairs, Kejriwal should resign instead of grumbling and getting insulted every day. Kejriwal has not yet decided to resign.

However, during the past about two years of Kejriwal’s rule in Delhi, the living conditions for the people in the capital of India have gone from bad to worse.

Today, Delhi is the most polluted and perhaps the dirtiest city in the world. While the education standard in Delhi is in a deplorable state, corruption is so rampant in almost every street of Delhi that Kejriwal has failed to check it.

In an ongoing RMN Poll given below, a whopping 78% people say they are not satisfied with Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi.

Plus, in the RMN Popularity Poll, Kejriwal’s own popularity is severely damaged. With only 7% votes Kejriwal stands at No. 9 in a list of 10 candidates. You can vote and check out the poll results so far.

Kejriwal, who also is at daggers drawn with PM Modi, believes that Jung is taking orders from Modi to harass him. Earlier, Kejriwal also had said in a video message that Modi might get him killed.

Now Kejriwal – without giving any reason for his belief – believes that Jung is pleasing Modi because he wants to become the Vice President of India. He also stated in his Hindi tweet that Modi will never appoint Jung Vice President because he is a Muslim.

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,” Kejriwal tweeted.

Jung’s response is awaited.
