Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal today slammed Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal for holding a Covid-19 review meeting with officials “behind the back of elected government”.

“It is against the Constitution and Supreme Court judgement to hold such parallel meetings behind the back of an elected government. We are democracy,” the Delhi chief minister said on Twitter.

Baijal earlier today held a review meeting which was attended by Delhi Chief Secretary Vijay Dev, the additional chief secretary(home and health), divisional commissioner, secretary (health), MD-DMRC and other officials concerned.

“People have elected a Council of Ministers. If you have any questions, please ask your ministers. Avoid holding direct meetings with officers. Let’s respect democracy, sir,” Kejriwal tweeted a while ago, condemning the meeting.
