Lt Governor flags Delhi Ministers' no-show at meetings in letter to Centre
4/8/2024 10:29:59 PM
NEW DELHI, Apr 8: Showing "insensitivity and lack of seriousness", Delhi ministers refused to attend meetings called by Lt Governor VK Saxena to discuss functioning of their ministries following the arrest of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Lt Governor said in a letter to the Union Home Ministry. Arvind Kejriwal was arrested by the Enforcement Directorate on March 21 in connection with a money-laundering case linked to the now-scrapped Delhi excise policy. In his letter, the Lt Governor said such a consultation was necessary "so that routine works of governance are not hampered" in the backdrop of Mr Kejriwal's arrest but the ministers declined his invite on the "specious ground" that the model code of conduct was in force. Upon the arrest of Arvind Kejriwal, Hon'ble Chief Minister of Delhi and subsequent events, especially those related to public health infrastructure in the city, the impeding Summer Action Plan for water availability, etc playing out in the public domain, Lt Governor had decided to convene a meeting of key ministers of GNCTD dealing with the departments of water, education, health, transport, environment & forest etc," according to the letter.
An intimation was sent to Gopal Rai, Kailash Gahlot, Atishi, and Saurabh Bharadwaj for a meeting on April 2, the letter stated.
However, all the ministers have vide e-mails declined to attend the said meeting on the specious ground that since the model code of conduct is in force, such a meeting would not be appropriate at this stage," it said.
