In a veiled attack at Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said several obstacles are being created for his government "because we are doing good work".

Kejriwal made references to the dissolution today of Delhi Waqf Board by Jung, summons issued to the deputy CM, Manish Sisodia, by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB), and the quashing last month of his government's notification on circle rates of agriculture land by the L-G.

"Ag land Circle rates declared void, manish summoned by ACB, waqf board disbanded-several obstacles being created only bcoz v doing gud work(sic)," he tweeted.

Today, the L-G dissolved the Delhi Waqf Board over alleged irregularities while handing over the matter to the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) for a probe.

Earlier in the day, Sisodia was summoned by the ACB in connection with its probe into an alleged recruitment scam in the Delhi Commission for Women (DCW). He will be questioned on October 14.

Earlier this week, the L-G had struck down the Delhi government's notification of 4 August 2015 that had revised circle rates of agricultural lands.
