Will not allow President's rule to be imposed in Delhi: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi: In the wake of President's rule being imposed in Arunchal Pradesh and Uttarakhand owing to a crisis in the ruling party, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said he will never let such an "incident" be repeated in the national capital.

While noting that the Opposition should be heard by the ruling party MLAs, Kejriwal also asked the Opposition to respect the mandate of the people.

Referring to the imposition of President's Rule in Arunchal Pradesh and Uttrakhand, Kejriwal said, "Opposition should respect the mandate of Delhiites. We will never let the incident of Arunachal Pradesh and Uttrakhand be repeated in Delhi."

On Tuesday, Kejriwal had slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the imposition of President's rule in Uttarakhand, claiming that the Centre would try to "destabilise" the Delhi and Himachal Pradesh governments.

"BJP knows that it will not win a single election in the next two years so it has resorted to 'goondagardi'. They will try it in Himachal Pradesh and Delhi next. In Delhi, they plan to suspend 21 MLAs first and then attempt to buy 23 more," Kejriwal had said.
