New Delhi, Jan 26: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung, the chief protagonists of a bitter turf war in the national capital, were on Tuesday, Jan 26 seated together in a VIP enclosure at Rajpath during the Republic Day parade.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and PWD Minister Satyendar Jain were also present in one of the stands as military contingents, dance troupes and tableaux from various states rolled down the path.
Delhi, which last showcased a tableau in 2013 parade, did not have one this year too. Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had triggered a political controversy last year by claiming that Kejriwal had not been invited to attend the parade which had US President Barack Obama as the Chief Guest.
The allegations had come amidst a bitter electoral battle being fought then. Kejriwal and Jung have been involved in a protracted tussle over several issues since the AAP government assumed office in February last year, including over the control of Delhi Police and the Anti-Corruption Branch of the Delhi government.
