Hyderabad: As part of his national-wide tour to garner the support of political parties against the Centre’s ordinance, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will be visiting Hyderabad on Saturday. The Delhi Chief Minister will meet Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and discuss the consequences following the Centre’s ordinance on the control of services in the national capital.
The meeting between Kejriwal and KCR is expected to revolve around their shared concerns regarding the Ordinance and potential strategies to address the issue effectively. Apart from this, both leaders are likely to discuss the national politics and their strategies against the BJP government at the Centre. Recently, the union government has promulgated an ordinance to create an authority for transfer and posting of Group-A officers in Delhi.
Strongly opposing the Centre’s Delhi ordinance, Kejriwal has been touring across the nation to bring non-BJP parties on board and to garner their support against the ordinance. As part of his tour, the Delhi Chief Minister called on Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar in Mumbai on Friday and sought his support. Kejriwal has already met his West Bengal and Bihar counterparts, Mamata Banerjee and Nitish Kumar, respectively, and Shiv Sena (UBT) chief Uddhav Thackeray who promised support. The Delhi Chief Minister alleged that the Centre’s ordinance has affected the federal structure of the country and these are being used as a weapon to hinder elected governments.
