Quoted selectively' and charged erroneously' by Delhi CM: Baijal

Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Baijal today said he was "selectively" quoted and "erroneously" charged of selective acceptance' of the verdict on the power tussle between government and the Centre.

Baijal's response came after accused him of being "selective" in accepting the apex court judgement.

"But how can you be selective in accepting the judgement? Either you should take a position that all the matters now would be placed before regular bench and therefore, you would not implement any part of the order. Or you should accept the whole order and implement it.

"How can you say that you will accept this para of the order but not accept that para of the same order?" Kejriwal had said in his letter to the L-G.

Baijal also accused the of leaking his letter to media.

"Before your letter reached my office, it appeared on social and electronic media," he said in his reply to Kejriwal.

Baijal noted that the "quoted selectively" from his letter of July 6 and "erroneously" accused him of selective acceptance of the July 4 verdict of Supreme Court, a statement by the L-G's office said.

"While the entire judgement and its implications are still being studied, it may kindly be noted that in the concluding paras, Hon'while answering the reference has directed to place the matters before the appropriate regular Bench. Therefore, further clarity will be achieved when the appeals pending before the Ld. Regular Bench are finally disposed off, the L-G had written in his July 6 letter.

The reiterated in his response today that as appeals were pending before the regular bench of Supreme Court, it would be "premature" to draw any conclusions at this stage.
