    Why a Union Territory CM is compared with the PM. Have you ever seen any other party CM holding rallies in other state. Why Kejriwal then?lt;br/gt;lt;br/gt;What good has he done in Delhi since coming to power. I live in Delhi and sadly don't see any. CM is more interested in expanding his network.

      Is it part of the duty of Kejriwal to address various rallies in different parts of the country which Kejriwal does frequently? Is the expense paid by the Delhi Govt. or the Aam Admi Party? If Aam Admi Party is footing the bills the party has become quite rich.

        Jung is an Indian EX Administrative Officer. Kejriwal is an EX Indian Revenue officer. Both are ex Government servants. They are both excellent and qualified in their own fields. They both very well know how the Government runs. They just meet on friendly human terms. My prediction is that they are destined to meet again. In Jung I see the future VP of India and Kejriwal will always be in politics. If only both these forces join to serve humanity and Indians that will create a very good result.

          the LG is supposed to work on the advice of the CM (that is the foundational spirit of the Indian consution) , instead mr. jung preferred to impose his will on most occations ignoring the advice and recommendation of the CM of delhi, Mr. khejrewal, if the founding fathers of the Consution of india were alive today, they would be thrilled to see the LG vacate his office........this is the best christmas present the LG gave to the people of delhi
