When asked if a jung (war) is going on between the Centre and the Delhi government, Singh said in a lighter vein, "There is no jung, only Najeeb Jung."

"We are not against anyone but it is our responsibility to uphold constitutional provisions. Everyone should remain within the framework of the Constitution," he said without naming anyone.

Asked to comment on Delhi Assembly's resolution holding as "illegal" the Centre's May 21 notification giving more powers to the LG and Kejriwal's statement that the Narendra Modi-led government is trying to push the country towards "dictatorship", the Home Minister said he would not like to say anything on this but added that the government was committed to uphold the Constitution.

Singh further said if any law and order situation arises in the national capital, the central government is obliged to intervene.

"I don't want to say who is doing what but we are committed to uphold the Constitution. Law and order is also my duty...we will see," he said.
