Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has taken public discourse to a new low in a taunting letter to Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung. One would have thought that Kejriwal had hit rock bottom with his earlier remarks that the PM is a ‘coward and a psycopath’, but this latest letter has managed to lower the bar even further.

According to this report –
“Days after accusing Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung of snooping for Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Delhi Chief MinisterArvind Kejriwal has shot a stinging letter with an advice for the LG.
Describing himself as his younger brother, Kejriwal said,”No matter how many illegal, immoral and anti-public decisions you take while working for PM Modi, he will never make you the Vice-President.”

Kejriwal also alleged that both Jung and PM Modi are scrutinising his government’s work by ordering random probes by ACB and CBI without any evidence.
“I inaugurated a 100-bed medical college yesterday. I would suggest… why don’t you register an FRI and get a probe done by the ACB. Also advise PM Modi to direct the CBI to conduct a raid on Health Minister Satyendar Jain for opening the hospital for the public in record time,” the letter stated sarcatiscally.”
The letter also says –
“Some people are born to serve humanity, struggle and be constructive. I am performing my Dharma (duty). Some people are born to be destructive and obstruct those performing good deeds. You and PM Modi are performing this duty.”
Ever since sweeping into power with an absolute majority in the Delhi State elections last year, Kejriwal and his AAP party stormtroopers have continued to indulge in the accusatory theatrics that was their hallmark during the anti-corruption movement. However, governance is not about mud-slinging, but a delicate task where mutliple stakeholders have to be taken along for the greater good of the common public. It is high time that Kejriwal learns this lesson and takes a leaf out of the book of non-NDA Chief Ministers like KCR who are quietly going about developing their states in co-ordination with the Central Government.
