New Delhi, June 10: Former chief minister of Delhi and Congress leader Sheila Dikshit on Sunday said that the Aam Aadmi Party government should not use its tactics to accuse the Centre and his attack to PM Modi-led central government is just an excuse. The comment has come following current Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal accused the centre of trying to frame him. In a series of tweets yesterday he slammed the union government for sending CBI to Delhi Jal Board to do a witch hunt.
Delhi is a Union territory, governed partly by Centre, we have to cooperate and work. In my 15 years in power, we never had any conflict with Centre or LG. This can't be excuse to not work. Public wants governance not complaints: Sheila Dikshit,former Delhi CM pic.twitter.com/EwO9OrHxmk

Over the comment, Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal was quick to respond with a series of tweets. Targeting Dikshit for his statement, Kejriwal wrote in his tweet that citizens of Delhi would cry because of electricity and water bills during Dikshit’s tenure as the chief minister.
शीला जी, आपके टाइम जनता पानी और बिजली बिलो से रो दी थी। सरकारी स्कूलों अस्पतालों का बुरा हाल था। प्राइवट स्कूल मनमानी फ़ीस बढ़ाते थे। हमने ये सब ठीक किया।
आपके समय 10 साल केंद्र में आपकी अपनी सरकार,अपने LG थे।

He further alleged that the functioning of government hospitals was in hopeless and private schools would arbitrarily increase the fees during the Congress regime in the national capital. But we fixed all of this, Kejriwal stated.
Furthermore, he also challenged Dixit to run the Delhi government under PM Narendra Modi's regime. In a sarcastic tone, Kejriwal also asked Dikshit to give the Gyan (lecture) to Puducherry Chief Minister and Congress leader V Narayanasamy, who has often criticised Puducherry’s Lt Governor Kiran Bedi for allegedly interfering with administration work.
