Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde on Saturday sought to defend the joint opposition by Congress and BJP to introduction of Janlokpal Bill in Delhi Assembly and accused AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal of violating his oath of the chief minister’s office.

“Before assuming the office, an MLA or an MP takes the oath. Similarly, chief minister also takes the oath of (abiding by) the constitution before assuming the office. Kejriwal has however violated that oath,” Shinde told reporters at his hometown Solapur.

Kejriwal stepped down as Delhi Chief Minister on Friday after he was prevented from tabling his dream Janlokpal bill in the Assembly in face of stiff opposition from the Congress and BJP.

“The Janlokpal Bill was not tabled as per the rule… Since the method applied was wrong, both Congress and the BJP opposed it,” Shinde said.
