Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and three of his cabinet ministers have gone to meet the Lieutenant Governor with their demands and are refusing to leave till their demands are met. Kejriwal claims that the IAS officers of Delhi have been on strike for 4 months now and he is demanding action taken on the officers. He is also demanding the LG to approve the doorstep delivery of ration.
Kejriwal has been conjuring up new issues for his theatrics. Recently he had been on a tweet spree demanding full statehood for Delhi. Interestingly, he has also fashioned the full statehood demand around the lines of India’s freedom struggle, going as far as declaring ‘LG quit Delhi.’ All the melodrama took another interesting turn when AAP’s rebel MLA Kapil Mishra moved to sue Kejriwal for not attending the assembly.
Even though the IAS association dismissed Kejriwal’s claims that the officers are on strike and stated that movement of files have been normal and no work has been affected, Kejriwal took to Twitter to blame the officers.
The IAS association had condemned the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by Kejriwal’s MLAs in his presence and had declared that they will only do their work for the public and will no longer respond to summons or orders from Kejriwal od his ministers. Twitter users reacted in kind to Kejriwal’s tweet.
Such a genuine question needs a genuine answer.
For the first time, a chief secretary was beaten up at the home of a Chief Minister.
The events that followed were equally pathetic.
They are not on strike.
I think they are demanding security till you are the Chief Minister. https://t.co/NPTdxryBxB

You summon the Delhi Chief Secretary to your home late at night, you indulgently watch your lumpen stooges beat him up, you defend this hooliganism, and yet you have the gall to play innocent and ask why? You ain’t no Little Red Ridin’ Hood, sir, nor are you the gallant hunter. https://t.co/k1tvH7pkGK

In the history of independent India, this is the first time Chief minister behaving like Sadak Chap Gunda, inviting IAS officers to his home to Beat him. https://t.co/p6ixkbEPoL

Pictures of Kejriwal and his ministers sitting and later sleeping on couches in a waiting room inside Raj Niwas have gone viral in the social media last night. It is indeed a sad irony for the people of Delhi as their CM is known more for his theatrics and drama stunts than any work on the ground.
