Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today accused the Centre of “stalling” the Delhi government’s activities by allegedly holding back files relating to the appointment of two new ministers in his cabinet.
Kejriwal said the people of Delhi should not suffer due to the BJP-led Centre’s “enimity” with the Aam Aadmi Party government. “The Centre is sitting on the files for the last 10 days.
Many Delhi government activities are stalled due to this. Your enmity is against us, don’t take revenge from the people of Delhi,” he tweeted.
दो मंत्रियों की फ़ाइल पर केंद्र 10 दिनों से बैठा है। दिल्ली सरकार में कई काम रुके हैं। आपकी हमसे दुश्मनी है, दिल्ली की जनता से तो बदला मत लो

Kejriwal holds no portfolios in the Delhi government, which can have a maximum of seven ministers as per Constitutional provisions.
Kejriwal’s deputy Manish Sisodia also took to Twitter over the issue, saying now that sacked minister Kapil Mishra’s indefinite fast and the ensuing “media circus have ended”, it is time the files are cleared.
