Delhi CM Kejriwal calls off 9-day long ‘dharna’ at L-G’s office


Almost after nine days of his sit-in at the lieutenant governor’s office, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and three other Aam Aadmi Party members has called off the ‘dharna’ at Lt Governor Anil Baijal’s house on June 19.

The chief minister was requested to urgently meet the IAS officers in order to address the concerns of both sides, as per a release by the LG office.

“Delhi LG wrote to CM Arvind Kejriwal and requested CM to urgently meet the officers in the Secretariat so that apprehensions and concerns of both sides can be suitably addressed through dialogue in the best interest of the people of Delhi,” a press release by the Raj Niwas said.

Several meetings were attended by IAS officers during the day, said Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.

“Arvind Kejriwal will come out of the L-G office. It was not a dharna. We were waiting to meet the lieutenant governor,” the deputy chief minister told the reporters.
