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.

                    Kejariwal doesn't worry about the expenses incurred for New Election and throwing the hopes of Delhi people in Dustbin after making false commitment. He should have run government by fulfulling maximum commitment he made in Delhi people. If one or two commitment cannot be met, people can trust his government. But by making false commitment, he comes to the power and fools people.

                      By implication, Governor was happy with the previous Congress Government of Ms Sheila Dixit. But, the people of Delhi were not happy with her government. What can be done ?

                                  We cannot seat and wait for another fifty, sixty years to make minor changes in our corrupt system and fool the public. What we need is drastic and major step to change our corrupt insfrastacture and that's what Mr. Kejriwal was trying to do for the betterment of India and its society but unfortunately like always our corrupt politician do not want to see our country to move into right direction. Once changes done they will be first to caught.Who will make the law? PeopleIf the law is weak or not enough, why can't we change it? Why can't government interfere in the functioning of school and hospitals because politicians sends their children to best English medium schools and they get medical treatment in best hospitals. But see the conditions of Govt. schools and hospitals (Maximum) very, very low standard.Therefore we need drastic and quick changes in our system, for that we have to be awake and join hands will only bring the changes.
