Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, will meet K Chandrashekar Rao, the chief minister of Telangana, in Hyderabad on Saturday to solicit support from the Bharat Rashtra Samithi in opposition to the Center’s ordinance on control of services in the national capital.
In an effort to thwart the Center’s plan to replace the ordinance through a bill when it is introduced in Parliament, Kejriwal, who is also the national convenor of the Aam Aadmi Party, has been contacting leaders of non-BJP parties.
“Meeting Hon’ble CM of Telangana tomorrow in Hyderabad to seek support against unconstitutional and undemocratic ordinance passed by BJP government against the orders of Hon’ble Supreme Court,” tweeted Kejriwal.
He met with Mamata Banerjee, the chief of the TMC and the chief minister of West Bengal, Uddhav Thackeray, and Sharad Pawar, the leader of the NCP, earlier this week to ask for their support.
Additionally, Kejriwal has asked for time to meet with Rahul Gandhi, the party’s leader, and Mallikarjun Kharge, the president of the Congress, to ask for their assistance.
