New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lashes out at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi and said, "Rahul Gandhi is still a child. His party probably did not tell him that Railway comes under the central government, and not under the Government of Delhi."
Arvind Kejriwal tweeted this after Rahul Gandhi said that why the Aam Aadmi Party MPs are protesting outside parliament on Shakur Basti slum demolition issue when it is their government that rules Delhi.
A fresh confrontation raged between the Arvind Kejriwal Government and Centre over the death of the infant girl at a slum cluster at Shakurbasti Railway Colony that was demolished by Railways.
The AAP government has ordered a magisterial inquiry into the demolition drive and death of the six-month girl though railways has said that the incident had "nothing to do with removal of encroachments".
Yesterday, Kejriwal met Railway officials at his residence over the issue, but was unhappy with their response.
"Railway officials failed to give satisfactory response as to why demolition drive was carried out when asked whether it was an emergency project," sources said.
They also said that when CM asked them about why proper rehabilitation measures were not taken before demolition, Railway officials said that they will inform their Board and
Ministry about it.
"The Chief Minister was not happy with the Railway officials' response and he would take up the matter with Railway Minister," the sources said.
