Arvind Kejriwal quits as the CM of Delhi over Janlokpal bill

  • 5 years ago
The Aam Aadmi Party's whirlwind 49-day stint in office ended on Friday evening with chief minister Arvind Kejriwal launching AAP's Lok Sabha campaign by accusing Congress and BJP of coming together to thwart the Jan Lokpal bill.

Kejriwal used his resignation speech at AAP's Hanuman Road office — the same venue where AAP supporters had greeted him after the party bagged a stunning 28 seats in the Delhi election — to lash out at Congress and BJP for joining hands to allegedly protect the corporate interests of Reliance boss Mukesh Ambani.

The AAP government's decision to file FIRs against Ambani and Congress leaders for "illegally" raising the price of natural gas was the reason for the Jan Lokpal bill being defeated, the CM said.

The AAP leader sought to counter Congress and BJP criticism that the Jan Lokpal bill was "unconstitutional" by asking whether fighting graft was a violation of the Constitution. The query immediately evoked a roar from the party faithful.
