Resolve differences between Centre, state: Kejriwal to Modi

New Delhi, Sep 22 (IANS) Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to resolve the differences between the city government and the Centre.

In a letter to Modi, Kejriwal said: “I am informed that a PIL was filed in the Supreme Court yesterday (Monday) regarding the differences between the central government and the government of the national capital territory of Delhi. The apex court has also expressed its concern about the state of affairs in Delhi.

“I would urge that we should resolve these differences in the interest of the people of Delhi. I assure you that I shall be more than willing to work an extra mile in this direction.”

The public interest litigation (PIL) was dismissed but the apex court made some observations raising concerns with regard to the current state of affairs.

“This is a matter of governance deficit. We understand that there is the central government on the one hand and the government of Delhi on the other. These problems can be sorted at their ends. If any order is bad then we can look into it. If the two governments do not resolve their disputes and create governance problem, then the people will pass appropriate verdict at appropriate time,” the letter quoted the Supreme Court as saying.
