Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to “punish” Delhiites in his zeal to settle political scores.   Kejriwal said the current controversy over the future of the parliamentary secretaries was a creation of the Centre, which is hell bent on getting 21 of his legislators disqualified from the Assembly.
He said precedents of similar postings by the earlier Delhi governments were being ignored.
Citing examples of Sahib Singh’s BJP-led government in 1997

and Sheila Dikshit’s Congress-led government between 1998 and 2005, Kejriwal said: “When they appoint parliamentary secretaries it is legal, but when we do it, it is illegal.” “What kind of doublespeak is this?” asked Kejriwal.
“I request Modiji with folded hands that he can thrash me if he wants to settle scores with me but he should not punish the people of Delhi by dislodging the parliamentary secretaries who have been serving the public diligently,” Kejriwal said at a press conference.
