Delhi government’s relationship with the city’s Lieutenant Governor worsened further on Sunday after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused Najeeb Jung and BJP of “blocking” the government’s ambitious bus-lane proposal, under which motorists who obstruct the way of the buses in the dedicated lanes, would be fined Rs 2,000.
AAP government on Thursday had sent its plan on its dedicated bus-lane proposal to Jung three months after the LG sought a clarification. The new proposal sent by Kejriwal government had some minor changes.
Angry Kejriwal tweeted, “We trying to implement it (bus-lane proposal). Unfortunately, LG n BJP blocking it (sic),”
His another tweet read, “I hope BJP n LG wud read this article n stop blocking AAP govt’s schemes of public interest.”

Delhi government has planned to create dedicated bus lanes along major roads across the national capital.
It has recommended giving a “special power” to junior engineers and PWD officials senior to them, to impound vehicles and challan motorists obstructing plying of buses on the dedicated lanes.
