BJP also charged Kejriwal with forming an ‘immoral’ alliance and a government which showed ‘utter disrespect’ to constitutional systems and institutions.

BJP on Friday accused Arvind Kejriwal of forming a government in Delhi by “deceit” without a mandate of the poeple and resigning to cover up his failure to deliver on his commitments.

BJP also charged him with forming an “immoral” alliance and a government which showed “utter disrespect” to constitutional systems and institutions.

“This was one government which was not having a mandate. It came by deceit. They formed an alliance which was immoral and full of internal contradictions. “ In their short regime, they displayed anarchy on several occasions and utter disrespect to Constitutional system and institutions,” said BJP spokesperson Sudhanshu Trivedi.

He said finally when he realised that he was unable to fulfil his commitments made to people, he decided to resign to “cover up his failures”.

Criticising him for recommending dissolution of the assembly while resigning, Trivedi said he did not enjoy the confidence of the House and thus he cannot recommend so.

“After his government virtually lost the vote of confidence, they recommended that the House be dissolved, which only that government can recommend which enjoys the confidence of the House,” he said. Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party emerged with a stunning debut by winning 28 of 70 assembly seats in Delhi and was given support by Congress to form a government. He took over as Chief Minister on December 28 with outside support of eight Congress MLAs after the assembly polls in Delhi threw up a hung verdict with no party getting majority.

        AAP party's Kejriwal was deserving better end than what he received in 49 days. He was found to be ideologist only without shrewdness and political will to run the government. He failed miserably only because he was immature in politics and had no strong matured team to work with him. Looks like, he has proved in very short time that his phony slogans and hot head politics will not work in India. He will surely fail in the coming parliament election, and N. Modi will have the last laugh to be our next Prime Minister.

            Saw Dr Harshvardhan on TV today. Despite being prodded by several in the panel, he refused to even utter the name of Ambani (forget having guts to file an FIR against him). Clear indication of who is bankrolling BJP

                                      AK what was the problem in bringing in the lokpal bill in consutional manner? I can only understand that an activist (so called) has turned to politician. Hope people don't get fooled around next time.

                                        Delhi's Lt Governor has written without his permission speaker never discuss the any Lokpal bill. How BJP can go against consution ? Kejriwala AAp party can go to S.C against Governor if he has against law?

Please report the news and let the people conclude by themselves.
