"From time to time, Central government and the Lt Governor have invited suggestion of elected govt in Delhi. In fact former Union Home Minister L K Advani had allowed some written relaxation too in 1998 but never in city, there has been confrontation between the chief minister and the L-G on the matter of public order files," Gupta said in a statement.

However, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said that the state government wrote a letter to February 25 last month, saying that we followed all rules and there is no conflict between L-G office and CMO.

"Kejriwal is unduly interfering to create a politically vicious atmosphere. His intention is creating a politically confronting atmosphere just to divert public attention from his failing promises to people and ruthless autocratic functioning within his party," Gupta also alleged.
