Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s rendezvous with controversies involving hooliganism and of having dictatorial tendencies seem to have no limits. A senior bureaucrat, chairman and managing director of the Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC), K R Meena, wrote a letter to sought an apology from Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for his alleged misbehaviour during a meeting last week.
The officer claimed Kejriwal shouted “get out” at him in the meeting and he suffered “grave humiliation, embarrassment and anguish” during the interaction at Chief Minister’s residence.
The episode relates to Meena’s meeting with Kejriwal and Industries Minister Satyendar Jain at the Chief Minister’s residence on November 10.
The meeting was called to ask Meena expedite the process of DSIIDC handing over alternative plots to an industrialist whose current property was needed to be acquired partly to build a colony pathway for residents of Raja Vihar near Badli industrial area in northwest Delhi.
Meena’s letter allegedly accused Kejriwal of causing him grave embarrassment and humiliation, he further mentioned, “Worthy honourable CM lost his cool and shouted at me and directed me to leave his office. The literal word used by you was ‘get out’ in a highest possible tone with utter disrespect. CM shouted continuously and claimed that DSIIDC is not property of anybody’s father, and they will utilise its assets in a manner best suited.
“With grave humiliation, embarrassment and anguish I left your room. The entire episode shows your desperation and utter disrespect to the system and senior officers. This has happened without any fault of mine as no one could release government or DSIIDC land to a private party on assurance,” stated the letter.
The official also stated that the entire episode has “hurt him emotionally and disturbed him professionally”. “I am not able to concentrate on my work since the event,” Meena said.
The 1993 batch Indian Administrative Service officer wrote to Kejriwal: “The entire episode shows your desperation and utter disrespect to the system and senior officers. This has happened without any fault of mine.”
This however, won’t be the first time such allegations were raised against Kejriwal’s behavior, from time to time many former AAP founding member have accused Kejriwal of mistreating his power while bringing ahead one man army. The leader have firmly believed that there isn’t any place for democracy, further making a ruthless dictator.
