New Delhi: In what could be said to be strong words, Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Anil Baijal on Friday condemned the recent ‘unfortunate incidents’ in the national capital and said that there was no place for violence in a democracy.
“Met Honourable CM Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues. Strongly condemn the recent unfortunate incidents. Advised elected government to take steps to remove mistrust with government employees so that development of Delhi is not affected. No place for violence in a democracy,” he tweeted.
On the other hand, Kejriwal tweeted after meeting the LG, “Officers not attending meetings for last three days. Governance suffering. LG assured he will take all steps to ensure officers started functioning normally. Council of ministers assured him all cooperation. All of us need to work together for the betterment of Delhi.”
Meanwhile, a Delhi Police team on Thursday descended on Kejriwal’s residence and seized a hard disk of the CCTV camera system installed there in connection with an alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by AAP MLAs.
