Delhi CM Kejriwal threatens to resign over jan lokpal bill
Will Delhi CM Kejriwal quit Today over Jan Lokpal Bill?


Arvind Kejriwal's government demise looks imminent over the ongoing efforts to introduce the Aam Aadmi Party’s Jan Lokpal on Friday in Delhi Assembly .

Arvind Kejriwal has threatened to resign  if jan lokpal bill was not introduced in the assembly.

Confrontation between the Centre and the Delhi government led by the Aam Aadmi Party is taking place as Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal  is adamant to table the controversial Jan Lokpal Bill in the state assembly  ignoring Union Law Ministry's view that the Centre's prior approval was required.

If the session is disrupted for a second day, then the Chief Minister may resign. "No compromise on the Jan Lokpal Bill," tweeted Delhi minister Manish Sisodia today.

 The hardening of the AAP government's stand came even as Congress and BJP held the move by the ruling dispensation as
"unconstitutional"."Let there be a voting on tabling of the Bill. If Congress and BJP are against the tabling of the bill, its their wish."Even if they vote against the tabling of the Bill, probably, in that event the government will go," party leader and senior lawyer Prashant Bhushan said after party's Political Affairs Committee meeting.

 Kejriwal has said he would quit "a thousand times" if his pet proposal, which creates an ombudsman or "Lokpal" to investigate corrupt government officers, is not passed.

Arvind kejriwal called the match fixing between Congress and BJP to disrupt the  Delhi Assembly  so that Jan lokpal bill is not passed ."The Congress is not supporting AAP, it is supporting the BJP. The nexus between the Congress and BJP has been exposed today in the assembly," said Kejriwal on Thursday.

 Delhi cabinet on Thursday  cleared the Swaraj Bill, which intends to devolve power directly to the people to curb corruption at the local level.Delhi Assembly  witnessed unprecedented chaotic scenes on the first day of a special session as BJP and Congress MLAs joined hands in disrupting proceedings by throwing files, destroying mikes, flagging banners and trooping to the well demanding Law Minister Somnath Bharti's resignation over the midnight raid episode.

The party, however, said that even if Congress and BJPvote against the tabling of the Bill, the government will resign.

With the tabling of the jan lokpal bill in the Delhi assembly on Thursday looking highly unlikely, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal may make good his threat to resign.

The Union law ministry late on Wednesday said the Delhi government would have to take the prior consent of the Centre before tabling the anti-corruption legislation.

He said that the party's agenda is to get the Jan Lokpal Bill passed and if that doesn't happen the government will quit.

The Chief Minister had warned that he "will go to any extent" to get the bill passed in the assembly.

The Law Ministry has held that the Transaction of Business Rules (TBR) make it mandatory that the Lt Governor refer to
the Centre every legislative proposal which may necessitate additional financial assistance.

One protester explained why he was there: “Venezuela is waking up, we’ve had enough of so much insecurity and repression on the part of the state’s public authorities and we are tired and showing it.”

It is the worst bout of unrest seen on the streets of the country’s capital Caracas since the turmoil which followed Maduro’s election last year.
