- Arvind Kejriwal met Punjab state electricity department officials in the absence of CM Bhagwat Mann
- Former Punjab CM Amarinder said his worst fear has come true
- Navjot Singh Sidhu called Kejriwal’s action a clear “breach of federalism” in a Twitter post
Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal’s meeting with Punjab officers in the absence of Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann has sparked a controversy. Opposition parties are now alleging that Kejriwal is the de-facto CM and he is controlling Punjab from Delhi. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) had recently won the elections in Punjab by a big margin.
AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal had recently met the top officials of Punjab State Power Corporation Limited (PSPCL), where, among other officials, the state’s chief secretary and power secretary were also present.
Soon after the meeting, senior Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu took to Twitter to say that this move was a “clear breach of federalism” and an “insult to Punjabi pride”.
