Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government has never had the best relations with the national capital's Lieutenant Governor and recently appointed Anil Baijal is no different. Breaking his long-maintained silence, the LT has condemned the unprecedented faceoff between Delhi government and Anshu Prakash.

In a 5-minute meeting with Delhi's Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, Anil Baijal advised the minister to take appropriate steps for removing Government employees' mistrust in the ruling party for the development of Delhi. His latest tweet clarified that there's no place for violence in a democracy.

"Met Honourable CM Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues. Strongly condemn the recent unfortunate incidents. Advised elected government to take steps to remove mistrust with government employees so that development of Delhi is not affected. No place for violence in a democracy," he tweeted.

Arvind Kejriwal, on the other hand, is worried about their crumbling governance. Ever since Delhi's Delhi's chief secretary Anshu Prakash accused AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal and Amanatullah Khan of physically assaulting him at the CM Kejriwal's residence, officers have stopped attending official meetings.

"Officers not attending meetings for last three days. Governance suffering. LG assured he will take all steps to ensure officers started functioning normally. Council of ministers assured him all cooperation. All of us need to work together for the betterment of Delhi," Kejriwal tweeted.

Meanwhile, Delhi Police has acquired a hard disk of the CCTV camera system from Arvind Kejriwal's residence in connection to the Anshu Prakash's allegations after searching his property on Friday. The Police has claimed that the forced search came after their request for CCTV footage was ignored by the CM's residence.
