Speaking to the CNN-IBN in an exclusive interview, Naidu, Union Minister of Urban Development, Housing and Urban Poverty Alleviation and Parliamentary Affairs said Kejriwal was raking up unnecessary controversies only to divert people's attention from his failure.[Jung declares appointments void]

Kejriwal's Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has accused Jung of interfering in its functioning. It even alleged that the Centre is trying to run the Delhi government.
Naidu told the channel that Kejriwal should concentrate on governance instead of getting into the tussle. He also rubbished Kejriwal's claims that the Centre was trying to hijack Delhi's governance. He said the Centre has no role in this and the duties and the responsibilities of the CM and the governor were clearly laid down in the Constitution.
The minister also backed Jung, saying the latter has been right in protecting the rule of the land.
