Kejriwal, along with some of his cabinet colleagues, is sitting on an indefinite dharna at LG Anil Baijal's office since Monday.

Amidst the ongoing tussle between the Arvind Kejriwal led-AAP and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal, opposition parties slammed the government for creating an 'emergency-like ' situation in the state.

Delhi Congress chief Ajay Maken said Kejriwal should put an end to the crisis by expressing "regrets" to Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, who was allegedly manhandled by AAP legislators at the chief minister's residence during a late night meeting on February 19.

"Still remember the unabashed 'apology' radio ads by Kejriwal after his 49 days gov in 2014. Now-apology from Majithia,Jaitley, Sibbal...Why can't he just offer regrets to the CS and govern Delhi the way he is Constitutionally supposed to? Why should Delhi suffer his inflated ego (sic)?" Maken tweeted.

Former Delhi chief minister and Congress leader Sheila Dikshit said nobody could help Kejriwal if he did not understand the constitutional provisions regarding Delhi.

Dikshit said there was no harm in fighting for more power, but added that it could only be done through Parliament.

"If a chief minister does not understand the basics about his state, then I have nothing to say. Everybody has the right to ask for more power, but it has to be by changing the Constitution through Parliament. He can have the powers he is seeking only through Parliament," she added.

Dikshit dismissed the AAP allegation that the Congress was siding with the BJP, while several political parties were standing by Kejriwal in the ongoing tussle.

"What they are saying is totally irrelevant. We have got our own identity," she said.

Meanwhile, the  BJP on Sunday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for "creating drama to further his political ambitions" with his sit-in protest at the Lt. Governor's (LG) residence demanding a direction to the IAS officers to end their non-cooperation with his government.

In a letter addressed to Kejriwal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Delhi unit leaders and rebel AAP MLA Kapil Mishra said: "You have done everything in your power to shrug off any responsibility that comes with the position you hold, we are writing to you with a hope that you would have your conscience awakened to your moral responsibility.

Kejriwal, along with some of his cabinet colleagues, is sitting on an indefinite dharna at LG Anil Baijal's office since Monday, demanding the latter to direct the IAS officers to call off their "strike" and clear his government's doorstep ration delivery scheme.
