Furious Delhi govt may take legal action against Kejriwal
New Delhi: Delhi Government on Saturday indicated taking legal action against Arvind Kejriwal for "illegally" restoring electricity connection of a consumer during protest against "inflated" power and water bills and accused him of trying to spread "anarchy" and "lawlessness" in the city.
Slamming Kejriwal for "breaching" the law and asking people not to pay electricity bills, Delhi Power Minister Harun Yusuf said legal action must be taken against him.
"Kejriwal is trying to spread anarchy and lawlessness in the city. He does not believe in law and order. We will not allow him to succeed. Legal action must be taken against Kejriwal for his illegal act and instigating people to do so," Yusuf said.
Kejriwal launched his protest at Tigri Colony in South Delhi by restoring the power connection of the labourer, who claimed that he got a bill for Rs 15,000 last month and connection disconnected as he could not pay it.
He said the India Against Corruption will hold a dharna tomorrow and burn electricity bills in 114 municipal wards.
