Reacting to the flurry of controversies that the AAP has found itself in since the last few weeks, senior AAP leader Somnath Bharti today said that the party is being “watchful” towards the direct and indirect attempts made by a “corrupt nexus” to topple their government in Delhi.
Former Delhi Law Minister Somnath Bharti said, “Due to our efforts, the activities of a corrupt nexus has been disrupted. This nexus of corrupt is now all out in the open to do whatever they can against us. So, directly and indirectly attempts are being made to topple our government. But we are watchful.”
Bharti, stated that the continuous war of words between the AAP-led government in Delhi and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung was a ‘tussle’ with the Narendra Modi-led BJP government at the Centre, and not between LG and Kejriwal.
Commenting on the issue, Bharti said, “The democratically defeated BJP (in Delhi) is using administration to hamper our government. This is not a tussle between the LG and CM (Kejriwal) but AAP-led government at Delhi and Modi-led Government.”
“LG (Jung) is acting as a front man,” he said while referring to the “Executive Order,” issued by Centre recently allocating more powers to the Lt Governors.
Speaking on the rift between Jung and AAP government over choice of various officers, Bharti alleged that “it is an attempt by the Modi government to disallow the fruits of a democratically elected government.
