New Delhi, June 15: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his Cabinet colleagues sit-in protest at the Lt Governor’s (LG) Anil Baijal office has entered to Day 5 on Friday.
Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Satyendra Jain and Gopal Rai has been camping in the Raj Niwas since Monday evening to press demands which includes, a direction to IAS officers working in the Delhi administration to end their “strike”, action against officers who have struck work for “four months” and a nod to his government’s proposal for doorstep delivery of ration.
On the related note, Kejriwal wrote a to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and sought his intervention to end the IAS officers “strike”, as there has been no communication from LG Anil Baijal’s office.
Summarising the four days journey so far, Kejriwal said in tweet: “There has been no response from the LG. I have asked him for time for a meeting. I had asked the Prime Minister to look into the matter, he too did not respond. Hope Delhi will soon find a solution.”
आज सत्येन्दर जी के अनशन का चौथा दिन है। मनीष जी के अनशन का तीसरा दिन है।
कल LG साहिब से मिलने का समय माँगा था। उन्होंने जवाब भी नहीं दिया
प्रधानमंत्री जी से हस्तक्षेप करने का आग्रह किया। उन्होंने भी कोई जवाब नहीं दिया
उम्मीद करता हूँ दिल्ली को जल्द समाधान मिलेगा

Jain, who is on a hunger strike since Tuesday, in a tweet urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to look into the matter.
“Have been waiting in the LG office from last four nights, but he could not mange even four minutes time. I hope the Prime Minister will look into this,” Jain tweeted.
Flagging similar sentiments, Rai also tweeted adding that he hopes Modi will “be concerned about the fitness of the democracy in Delhi”.
In the meantime, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has launched a social media campaign with the hashtag #ModijiForgiveDelhi.
