Centre Trying to Destabilise Delhi Govt: Congress

Submitted by Subeditor on Wed, 2015-12-16 12:01 New Delhi: Backing Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's attack on the Centre over the raid on his office, the Congress on Wednesday said that incident had been a “calculated” move to destabilize the Delhi Government while asserting that it was a sad day for democracy. “They could have spoken to Kejriwal if they had any allegations against him. But this is a calculated move and a plot by the Centre to destabilize the Delhi Government. Common decency was thrown out of the window in this incident,” Congress leader P.L. Punia told media. Resonating similar sentiments, Congress leader P.C Chacko said that the ongoing battle between the Centre and the state government was harming the people of Delhi and that the state administration has come to a standstill. “A clear case of blame game is going on and it is a sad day for democracy. It this is the corporate federalism that the Prime Minister was talking about, then it is quite disappointing. For whatever reason a Chief Minister's office is raided, it is something that should not happen in India,” Chacko told siad However, the Centre defended the CBI today and said that they were simply doing their “duty” and that no one should try to disrupt them.
