New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung is a “good man with bad political bosses” and removing him will be of no help as he is only following the orders of the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).
“The Congress and the BJP both demanding Najeeb Jung’s removal? Strange. Is he at fault? No. He is doing what the PMO is asking him to do,” Kejriwal wrote on his Twitter-handle.
“Removing him will not help. His successor would also do same if the PMO kept interfering. Real solution is the PMO should stop interfering in Delhi,” he said in another tweet.
“Najeeb Jung is a good man with bad political bosses,” the chief minister said.
Bharatiya Janata Party MP Udit Raj on Friday demanded Jung’s removal describing him as a “super king” for not heeding the views of elected representative, a day after three of his supporters were held for allegedly assaulting an IAS officer.
The Congress has also called for the removal Jung, saying he has undermined the federal basis of the constitution and was not fit to occupy the post.
