Delhi L-G Najeeb Jung is learnt to have expressed deep concern over the functioning of the Arvind Kejriwal government while speaking at the President’s annual governors’ meet, going to the extent of saying that its members had “little consideration” for rules and regulations.

Jung, who spoke on Thursday at the two-day conference at Rashtrapati Bhawan, is learnt to have specifically highlighted the case against Ugandan nationals, saying that a foreign woman national had to take to “urination on the road” because of misbehaviour by ministers of the AAP government.

Sources said the L-G also voiced concern over the Delhi government’s interference in the functioning of schools and hospitals, which was an obvious reference to the vigilante-style surprise visits by some ministers to institutions and ordering changes without proper review.

Jung is said to have also underscored that the crime situation has been worrying, with rape cases on the rise.

Jung’s remarks, sources said, made it clear that despite his efforts, the Delhi government had gone in a direction which was adding stress to institutional relationships as imagined by the constitution.

While there was some chemistry between Jung and Kejriwal in the initial days, especially when the L-G managed to get him to end his street protest, it steadily deteriorated thereafter with AAP leaders calling him a “Congress agent”.

                Jung is Lt Governor of Delhi not on merit but because he is from a minority community and willing to toe the Congress line. People like him who are willing to crawl when asked to bend have been the bane of Indian democracy. In any case he was speaking at a meeting organised by a known Ambani stooge.
