Rahul Gandhi Tweets on Delhi Crisis; Blames PM Modi For Turning Blind Eye to Anarchy in State

New Delhi, June 18: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi on Monday hit the nail on the head, almost, when he tweeted on the AAP-LG stand-off in Delhi. He said, “Delhi CM, sitting in Dharna at LG office. BJP sitting in Dharna at CM residence. Delhi bureaucrats addressing press conferences. PM turns a blind eye to the anarchy; rather nudges chaos & disorder. People of Delhi are the victims, as this drama plays out.” (Also read: IAS Officers


  • Gandhi says Modi turning a blind eye to the anarchy.

While Gandhi’s observation got some facts wrong; the BJP is on a dharna at the CM’s office, he did echo his party’s stand on the issue. The Congress has openly flayed Kejriwal for making too much noise over something that could have been found a way around. That and Gandhi also managed to pin the blame on PM Narendra Modi, holding him responsible for not just turning a blind eye but even “nudging chaos and disorder”.

This comes at a time when four other non-BJP CMs, HD Kumaraswamy of Karnataka, Mamata Banerjee of West Bengal, Chandrababu Naidu of Andhra Pradesh and Pinayari Vijayan of Kerala, have openly shown support for the Kejriwal government. In Delhi for the NITI Aayog meeting on Sunday, the leaders met Kejriwal’s family and Kumaraswamy also reportedly took up the cause with the Prime Minister.
