New Delhi: In a direct attack on the Centre, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has put up posters across the national capital requesting Prime Minister Narendra Modi to allow the city dispensation to work.
The posters, which refers to 'interference' of Central government in the functioning of Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) and Delhi Commission for Women (DCW), reads, "Prime Minister Sir, Please, let Delhi government work. Delhi government is working fine."
This came soon after Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal shot a letter to the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung alleging that he has made the DCW 'completely dysfunctional' at the behest of the Prime Minister.
Speaking to media, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the Centre is 'attempting to weaken' AAP government's fight against corruption.
"Delhi government's anti-corruption branch was working with full vigour but as it started getting success, a new chief was appointed illegally," he said.
"Rumours were spread that the ACB was going to lodge an FIR against a Union Minister," he added.
Earlier, Delhi government had posted audio clips on social media slamming the Delhi Police and Modi over the gruesome murder of a 19-year-old girl.
Radio and newspaper advertisements have also been issued by the Delhi government to convey the message.
In the advertisement, Kejriwal appeals to Modi to take steps to improve Delhi's 'deteriorating' law and order situation or hand over police to the city government.
Yesterday, Delhi Police chief BS Bassi objected to the advertisement where Kejriwal has questioned the functioning of the force, calling it 'misleading'.
