Taking note of the tussle that has escalated between the Lt-Governor’s office and the Chief Minister’s office, the Centre on Monday advised Najeeb Jung and Arvind Kejriwal to work according to the Constitution while discharging their respective responsibilities.
Union Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju said, “Delhi is a Union Territory… and not a full-fledged state. The L-G has certain Constitutional duties and responsibilities and so does the CM. We all have to work under a set-up which is there in the Constitution.”

The Union minister’s comments came after reports emerged of a tussle between Jung and Kejriwal, after the L-G directed Delhi ministers and top officials to route all important files through him.
The L-G’s order came in response to an order issued by Kejriwal, directing senior government officials not to bother the L-G’s office by sending files to him.
