New Delhi : Continuing their tirade on the Delhi Chief Minister for targeting President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi over rejecting the AAP Bill to exclude the post of Parliamentary Secretary from the office of profit, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said that before ‘mudslinging’ others, Arvind Kejriwal should first introspect himself.
“Do you think it’s a conspiracy? They should do their work, take responsibilities. It is not a good thing to always to mudslinging on others. They should first introspect themselves before pointing figures at others,” Minister of State for Home Kiren Rijiju told ANI here.
With President Mukherjee rejecting the Bill to exclude the post of Parliamentary Secretary from the office of profit, Kejriwal earlier alleged that Prime Minister Modi is ‘scared’ of AAP while blaming him for posing an obstacle in the Delhi Government’s functioning.
Kejriwal told ANI that Prime Minister Modi is not yet able to digest the AAP’s splendid win in the Delhi Assembly polls.
The Delhi Government Bill to exclude the post of Parliamentary Secretary from the office of profit has been refused assent by the President, raising questions over the fate of 21 AAP MLAs, who have been appointed to the posts.
The refusal puts a question mark on the membership of 21 AAP MLAs, who have been appointed Parliamentary Secretaries.
The AAP Government had sought an amendment to the Delhi Members of Legislative Assembly (Removal of Disqualification) Act, 1997 through which it had sought “retrospective” exemption for the parliamentary secretaries from disqualification provisions.
Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung forwarded the Bill to the Centre, which in turn was sent to the President with comments. (ANI)
