CM Kejriwal criticises LG Saxena, saying, "Don't Believe He Even Knows Names Of Delhi Highways"
Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, blasted VK Saxena on Friday for standing in the way of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) administration's efforts rather than cooperating with them. "I would want to inform LG Saheb that you are from Gujarat. You are welcome here. He wouldn't likely even know the names of Delhi's roads, in my opinion. Yet a battle is not what we desire. The AAP leader addressed the crowd and said, "We want to work together.
Vinai Kumar Saxena, a native of Gujarat, is the first Delhi LG with a background outside of the military and the bureaucracy.
"What will the next generation think? They had a fight. Let's work together to provide sewage connections in every home, purchase new buses, and solve the traffic issue. We'll collaborate with you. India and Pakistan are not at war. It would essentially be a double-engine government if the CM and LG begin cooperating, "added Kejriwal.
The Delhi administration and LG Saxena, who was chosen by the Centre, have been engaged in a contentious power struggle over how the capital is governed. He has been charged by AAP of operating at the direction of the BJP-led national government.
After Saxena was named governor, the new Delhi liquor policy (excise policy 2021-22) that prompted a number of investigations and arrests of AAP leaders was repealed because he suggested the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) look into the involvement of former Delhi deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. After searches by the Enforcement Directorate (ED) in connection with the case last month, the CBI detained Sisodia.
Kejriwal also criticised Prime Minister Narendra Modi, alleging that attempts to destroy the nation are being done under his watch.
"Under the direction of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the nation is being attempted to be destroyed. The BJP should be home to those who want to ruin the nation, and the BJP should be abandoned by those who want to preserve it "He concluded, leading the House to erupt in laughter.
Kejriwal stated of the federal administration, "they are afraid," in reference to the exclusion of Rahul Gandhi from the Lok Sabha. Gandhi was expelled from the Lok Sabha after being found guilty and given a sentence in a criminal defamation case.
