This is my Surgical strike, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal says

This is my Surgical strike, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal says

Delhi CM Minister who is on a strike with Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia and three ministers said in L-F Office said today,”I am fighting for the people of Delhi against those who have stopped the public services. You can say this dharna (protest), but it is my surgical strike against those who want to punish the innocent voters of Delhi,“. Four months ago, Arvind Kejriwal, who has been taken a distance from the political limelight since the dispute with Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, has once again came back to the detention mode. This time, he is not doing protest in front of Rail Bhawan or Jantar Mantar. Instead of these familiar places, he is now resting at Delhi L-G Anil Baijal’s office. 

Kejriwal is demanding that Delhi’s Lt Governor Anil Baijal should end the alleged strike of IAS officers of the National Capital Region. Until the strike ends, they won’t leave Raj Nivas. Whether this Encompasses(Dharna) is legitimate or necessary, it will be investigated, but before that, you should know about the facts. Maybe by doing this Kejriwal is trying to increase his acceptability in politics and bureaucracy. But due to his unpredictable behavior, the officers and leaders may take a strong side against him.

Why is Central Government Mute?

In such type of cases, it is always seen that the central government becomes a mute spectator as there is no accountability to the people of Delhi. The head of the Delhi Government is Lieutenant Governor and he is directly liable to Report to the Central Government, then Central Govt must play the vital role of intervention or arbitrator. The center can not leave this semi-state on its trust. But whether the MCD workers’ strike, or the case of the Chief Secretary, or the alleged strike of the IAS officers, every time the central Government seemed silent.

Kejriwal’s Future after this drama?

In fact, most of the leaders have started to feel that if they meet with Kejriwal, then there can be created a new political drama. And now that Kejriwal has sat down on Raj Bhavan without informing, then PM Modi and Niti Aayog could think about ten times before calling Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in their respective meetings. In Indian politics, Mahatma Gandhi started the fasting, dharna(Protest) and other relevant things to make it important tools. However, he has spiritual reasons, and he was used it to put the pressure on the ruling government in a non-violent manner rather than attempting to violently demand it. But when Kejriwal do it, it becomes messy, very messy.
