Earlier on Friday he had requested PM Narendra Modi and the central government to set aside the politics while Delhi was facing dengue crisis.
Responding to the LG’s letter that instructed civil servants to defy the ‘illegal orders’ of Delhi government, Kejriwal said, “In his order to IAS officers, LG says that the Central Govt has asked him to do so. Delhi is going through a Dengue crisis and we are tackling it. Request Central Govt to cooperate right now and fight later.”
