BJP slams Arvind Kejriwal for calling SC verdict 'unconstitutional'
New Delhi : The Bharatiya Janata Party on Thursday slammed Arvind Kejriwal for putting up a question mark on Supreme Court's verdict on the power distribution between Najeeb Jung and Delhi government, terming him as an “anarchist”.
“We can’t believe a democratically elected CM can use this type of language for Supreme Court. He has always been an anarchist; tampering with rules while putting constitution at stake is his method,” said BJP spokesperson Sambit Patra.
Mr Patra also slammed Arvind Kejriwal by saying that who will take a decision on matters in the court - a judge or Delhi CM?
He also assured an action and said BJP is considering moving a contempt of court application against Kejriwal for calling the verdict “unconstitutional”.
Meanwhile, objecting to Kejriwal’s remarks on the SC verdict, Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit said: “Constitution has defined the power Delhi has, it's not unlimited. Centre, Lt Governor and Home Ministry handle a lot of things. So fighting is no solution, make changes if needed. Power doesn’t depend on the number of seats you have.”
