Hours after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal launched a tirade against Lt Governor VK Saxena, the BJP dubbed the AAP chief an “extreme egoistic leader” who believed that winning an election had given him the “right to misinterpret and override Constitutional provisions”.

In a statement, the BJP’s Delhi unit Working President Virendra Sachdeva quipped that it was shocking that a party that did not have a single MP in Lok Sabha was dreaming of forming a government at the Centre.

Addressing the Delhi Assembly on Saxena’s alleged interference in his government’s work, Kejriwal said, “Not even my teachers checked my homework as much as the LG scrutinises my files.”

“The LG is not my headmaster. The people have elected me as chief minister,” he said.

Kejriwal further claimed that Saxena had told him during a meeting that the BJP won 104 wards in the Municipal Corporation of Delhi elections because of him and that the saffron party would win all seven Lok Sabha seats in the national capital in the next General Elections.

The Delhi chief minister added that the Lt Governor did not have the power to make decisions on his own.

“The Supreme Court has clearly said that he cannot take a call on issues barring the police, land and public order,” he said.

In a sharp rebuttal to Kejriwal’s speech, Sachdeva said everything Kejriwal and his party had been doing post its “crushing defeat” in the Gujarat assembly elections indicated that he had lost his political balance and mental peace.

“The way CM Kejriwal is debating with the Lt Governor of Delhi and trying to misinterpret the Supreme Court’s observation as orders, it shows that Kejriwal has lost his political confidence post-exposure of corruption and nepotism in his government by several inquires ordered by the present Lt Governor be in liquor scam, classroom construction, Jal Board scam and above all advertisement recovery case,” Sachdeva said in a statement.

“It’s really shocking that a party which has not a single MP in Lok Sabha, its president Kejriwal is dreaming of forming government at the Centre soon,” he added.
