Delhi Assembly Speaker flays LG for not giving him appointment


IANS New Delhi
Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel on Wednesday said that Lt. Governor Anil Baijal has "violated Indian culture" by not giving time to meet him despite requesting twice.
Goel said he had written two letters to the Lt. Governor on January 4 and 10, asking for an appointment to meet Baijal to extend New Year greetings, but Baijal did not give an appointment.
"Even President gives time to meet him," the Speaker said and added that former Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung never declined to meet him.
He said Baijal replied to him on January 13 through a letter, but still did not give an appointment to meet him.
Although he was not given an appointment, Bharatiya Janata Party MLAs were given time to meet the Lt. Governor whenever they requested, Goel added.
