New Delhi, July 6: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia met with Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Friday to discuss the Supreme Court verdict. This is the first meeting between the L-G and the chief minister after the apex court order on the power tussle between the city government and the Centre.
In a press conference held after the meeting, Arvind Kejriwal said,"The LG has agreed that files of Delhi Govt need not be sent to him, only the decisions will be made known to him. This will help clear a number of files which had been pending."
"But in the case of Services he is not willing to cooperate, he says the MHA notification of is still effective," said Kejriwal.
"If the government doesn't follow orders of the Supreme Court there will be anarchy in the country," he added.
Baijal agreed to the meeting after Kejriwal's wrote to him for his support, underlining that the elected government did not need his concurrence after the top court's verdict.
Kejriwal wrote a letter to Baijal on Thursday, saying 'services' matter lies with the Council of Ministers after bureaucrats refused to follow the AAP government's order withdrawing powers of transfer and postings from the L-G.
In a landmark order, the Supreme Court on Wednesday clipped the powers of the L-G, saying he has no "independent decision-making power" and has to act on the aid and advice of the elected government.
