Lashing out on the Bharatiya Janata Get together-led Central authorities for “handing energy to the Lieutenant Governor”, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday mentioned that the Centre “punished” the Aam Aadmi Get together-led authorities for supporting farmers’ stir in opposition to the three new agricultural legal guidelines
Addressing a Kisan Mahapanchayat in Haryana’s Jind district at this time, the Aam Aadmi Get together (AAP) chief Arvind Kejriwal mentioned, “They’ve launched a invoice in Parliament to punish Kejriwal. We confronted repercussion for supporting farmer’s protest. They’re punishing us by passing the invoice & handing energy into LG’s fingers as an alternative of elected govt. Did we struggle freedom battle for this?”

Kejriwal went on to say that BJP-led central govt conspired to place farmers coming to Delhi into 9 stadiums to be transformed into jails. Kejriwal mentioned that the Delhi authorities was lucky that point because the regulation said that Delhi Chief Minister holds the ability to transform the stadium into jai.
“Centre despatched me a file and began pressurising me by saying there will probably be regulation and order problem. They even threatened me of taking away my energy. I did not hearken to them and rejected the file,” CM Kejriwal added.
Recollecting the sacrifices made by farmers, the CM claimed that 300 folks have misplaced lives through the protest and their sacrifice shouldn’t go in useless.
President Ram Nath Kovind on Sunday gave his assent to a invoice that offers extra powers to Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor – the centre’s consultant – in comparison with town’s elected authorities.
In accordance with the laws, the “authorities” in Delhi means the “Lieutenant Governor” and town authorities will now have to hunt the opinion of the L-G earlier than taking any government motion.
