Earlier the Delhi High Court on Monday asked the AAP government who authorised the sit-in by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and some of his cabinet colleagues at the lieutenant governor’s office and observed that strikes are usually held outside an establishment or office and not inside.
CM Arvind Kejriwal along with deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, Satyendar Jain and Gopal Rai on the 8th day since June 11 are conducting a sit-in protest at the L-G office demanding that Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal direct IAS officers to end what the AAP described as their “strike” and approve doorstep ration delivery scheme.
Satyendar Jain on Sunday rushed to a city hospital as his health deteriorated nearly a week after he had gone on an indefinite hunger strike at the Lieutenant Governor office.
Earlier actor turned politician and BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha also tweeted in support of Arvind Kejriwal protest. “…Kejriwal has certainly shown statesmanship and has appealed the officers to get back to work. He has moved two steps. Hope the so-called strike of the bureaucrats ends now… After the appeal of Kejriwal, I trust the Prime Minister will also intervene and get the strike over. It will be a good step by him for the people of Delhi and democracy at large. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” the Bharatiya Janata Party (bjp) MP tweeted.
Our dear friend, dynamic & most talked about Chief Minister of Delhi @ArvindKejriwal has certainly shown statesmanship & has appealed the officers to get back to work. He has moved two steps. Hope the so called strike of the bureaucrats ends now. Jai Hind!
