National Politics

New Delhi: The sit-in by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his three cabinet colleagues today entered its sixth day as impasse between the AAP dispensation and the Lt Governor over IAS officers’ “strike” continued.

Health minister Satyendar Jain and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who along with Kejriwal and Development Minister Gopal Rai have stayed put at L-G office since Monday evening, have been sitting on hunger strike since Tuesday and Wednesday respectively.
Yesterday, Kejriwal asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to work with his officers not attending his meetings.
He had challenged the prime minister on the issue of alleged “strike” by IAS workers and challenged him to work without the officers attending his meetings.

“How do we work like this? Can Modi ji try working like this even for a day? Can our critics kindly tell us how do we function like this? (sic),” Kejriwal had tweeted after Delhi Environment Minister Imran Hussain alleged that environment secretary did not attend a meeting on pollution.
