Arvind Kejriwal quits as Delhi Chief Minister
Friday February 14, 2014 8:20 PM, IANS

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was Friday resigned after failing to table the Jan Lokpal bill in the assembly, party sources said.

Kejriwal became the chief minister at the head of a minority Aam Aadmi Party government Dec 28 with the legislative support of the Congress that has now turned against him.

Earlier on Friday, Delhi Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung had written a letter to the Delhi assembly that the Jan Lokpal bill may not be considered for discussion as it was not approved by him.

"Since the bill is not approved by me, it may not be considered for discussion," reads the letter, sources told IANS.

The letter was addressed to the Delhi assembly and was with Speaker M.S. Dhir.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was desperate to pass the bill, which aims to check corruption in high places, during the four-day session, which started Thursday.
