Delhi Lt Governor Najeeb Jung on Saturday reacted to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s sharp attack on him with a terse remark, "May god forgive him for he knows not what he says".
Amidst bitter confrontation with Jung over the authority to run the city administration, Kejriwal had called the Lt Governor "polling agent of BJP".
"Delhi people have voted for us and the rest of the country supported Modi. So please let us run Delhi and you (Modi) run the country. Don’t create trouble for us everyday through the LG. This is not being a good Prime Minister.
Taking revenge for losing Delhi from people and AAP is not right," he said, sending out a message to Modi.
Slamming Jung, Kejriwal in an interview to a TV channel had said he does not give time even to Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia or other Delhi ministers for a meeting or take his calls.
"But if the ‘chowkidar’ (watchman) of (BJP President) Amit Shah calls him (LG), he will crawl and go," he said.
Alleging that the "LG house has become another BJP headquarter", Kejriwal had also said, "He (LG) is acting like a poll agent of BJP."
Though there was no statement from LG’s office, Jung made the brief remark, "May god forgive him for he knows not what he says".
