Arvind Kejriwal resigns as Delhi Chief Minister

By on February 14, 2014

Arvind Kejriwal announced his resignation as Delhi Chief Minister after Jan Lokpal Bill was not introduced in the assembly.

Addressing the crowd at AAP headquarter, Arvind Kejriwal said: We want Jan Lopal Bill to be passed but BJP and Congress united against it. BJP and Congress did not allow introduction of bill because of FIR against Mukesh Ambani. The Centre thinks it is some British government, and Delhi Lt Governor feels he is some Viceroy. Both parties have defamed the Delhi Assembly and Parliament. I will meet LG Najeeb Jung to give my resignation. I have read the constitution and will follow the constitution. I demand immediate re-election in Delhi.

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal speech in the Assembly: We are new to Assembly. We had thought we’ll learn things from our seniors. Yesterday incidents in the assembly proved that nothing can be learnt. It is said by both BJP and Congress that we took an unconstitutional step with regard to Jan Lokpal Bill. There was nothing unconstitutional in the Lokpal Bill, and, I have read the constitution but there is no where written in the Constitution that the bill needs sanction from the Centre. There is match-fixing between Congress and BJP. Both parties are fooling the people of India, and are afraid if strong Jan Lokpal Bill passed then many of their ministers will be in jail. Mukesh Ambani gives donations to both BJP and Congress, and as a result, BJP and Congress did not allow introduction of bill because of FIR against Mukesh Ambani. We are not here to save our government, but to save our country. I can quit CM’s post thousand times for Jan Lokpal Bill. This is our last Assembly session.
