        No, but wild allegations are Mr. Kejriwal. What if I accuse of involved in inciting suicide act of Farmer Gajendra which went horribly wrong - ultimately killing him. Should Delhi Police first arrest and interrogate you, or verify my statement that it has some sound arguments? And if things does not go according to your whim, you accuse the entire machinery. If you are so confident... you must be having a strong basis Mr. Kejriwal. Let the nation, see the grounds on which you are making the allegation, rather than just on a letter that is a complaint against the person to LG?

            It is true that Arvind Kejriwal and AAP Govt in Delhi measurably failed to give good governance to the people of Delhi as promised before coming to power. After seeing his activities, AK's aim is spread his wings in other states like Punjab,Goa and Gujarat where embly elections are to be held next year.For that he always wants to be in Print and Electronic Media as such he has started abusing or attacking leaders of Ruling Party specially Narendra Modi. He wants maxim coverage in media not with his good work of good governance but with negative activities.However Voters of those states will chop off his wings before landing in those states.He and his party can not fool other states unlike Delhi.
