New Delhi: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday stepped up attack on the Centre and hit out at Prime Minister Narendra Modi after an amendment aimed at exempting the appointment of 21 AAP MLAs as parliamentary secretaries was rejected by President Pranab Mukherjee.
Blaming the Prime Minister for this decision, CM Kejriwal said that PM is not allowing their MLAs to work as he feels threatened by his government.
He also said that it was the conspiracy of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) against the Delhi government. Kejriwal said, “No perks are being given to parliamentary secretaries. They are in other states too, why no action is being taken against them?”
While explaining the kind of work his party MLAs are indulged in, the CM said, “MLAs are spending their own money, petrol to provide service to the people of Delhi and no perks are being provide to them. All MLAs are working for free, with no compensation or reimbursement. So what problem does Prime Minister Narendra Modi has with this?”
