Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal hit back at Lieutenant Governor V K Saxena after the latter accused him of floating baseless accusations to fool the public. Continuing with his love letter jibe, Kejriwal said: “BJP is hell bent on destroying the lives of the people of Delhi. Every day, these people make a fuss about something or the other. I assure all Delhiites, don’t worry as your son is alive. I will not let anyone harm you.”
Saxena, in a letter to the CM on Saturday, wrote: “I regret that you and your leaders besides crossing all the limits of dignity, are running away from the responsibility of constitutional duties and governance. Your government which runs on the support of ads and bhashans (debates) seems to be alienating from orginal work. When I raised this matter, you and your leaders, instead of providing answers, made the public fool and imposed baseless allegations and personally attacks on me.”
