Amidst his ongoing tussle with the AAP government, Lieutenant Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung today met Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and discussed with him various issues concerning the national capital.
The ongoing tussle between Jung and the AAP government over the issues like granting parole to former Haryana Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala and allotment of land to BJP for building were believed to have figured during the 20-minute meeting.
The Aam Aadmi Party has been alleging that Jung was showing “undue interest” in Chautala getting parole which the LG dismissed saying Chautala’s parole plea was rejected on October 5.
Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia has also accused Jung of allotting land, earmarked for a school, to BJP for the purpose of building its party office and wondered what “forced” the LG to take such a step.
However, Delhi Development Authority, headed by the LG, claimed that the land usage, from a “nursery school” to one for a party office, has not been changed but was in “due process”.
