The Delhi High Court has decided to hear a plea seeking withdrawal of ongoing protest at the Lt. Governor’s office by Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues on June 18.
The plea which has been filed by an advocate says that due to the protest a situation of constitutional emergency has arisen in the Capital.
Today is the fourth day of the protest in which Kejriwal along with Satyender Jain, Gopal Rai and Manish Sisodia have been camping in the official accommodation-cum-office of Lt. Governor Anil Baijal. They are pressing for their demands to be met from the office of Lt. Governor and until they are not met they will not move from the office of Lt. Governor.
The demands include a direction to IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to call-off their “strike”, action against officers who have obstructed work for “four months” and sanction to Delhi government’s scheme for doorstep delivery of ration to the poor.
