Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Sunday, accused Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and BJP of “blocking” the government’s ambitious bus-lane proposal, under which motorists who obstruct the way of the buses in the dedicated lanes, would be fined Rs 2,000.
Three months after Jung sought a clarification from the Delhi government on its dedicated bus-lane proposal, the AAP government on Thursday sent back the plan to him after making minor changes in it.

“We trying to implement it (bus-lane proposal). Unfortunately, LG n BJP blocking it (sic),” the Delhi Chief Minister wrote on Twitter.
In another tweet, Kejriwal said that he hoped that the LG and BJP would stop “blocking” the AAP government’s public interest schemes.
As per the government’s plan, dedicated bus lanes will be created along major roads across the national capital.
The Delhi government has recommended giving a “special power” to junior engineers and PWD officials senior to them, to impound vehicles and challan motorists obstructing plying of buses on the dedicated lanes.
Dedicated bus lanes have been marked along 500 km of Public Works Department (PWD) roads in the capital, PWD Minister Satyender Jain has said.
