NEW DELHI, INDIA - JUNE 15: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal addressing a press conference on the issue of Parliamentary Secretary on June 15, 2016 in New Delhi, India. Delhi chief minister attacked the Narendra Modi-led government, asking the BJP and Congress why they were questioning the AAP government for appointing MLAs as parliamentary secretaries when they had made similar appointments in the past. President Pranab Mukherjee refused to sign a bill that allowed 21 Aam Aadmi Party MLAs to hold a second paying position as parliamentary secretary.

The Aam Aadmi Party today alleged that Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung's role in NDMC official MM Khan case was "suspicious" and demanded that action be taken against him.

"His (Jung's) role is suspicious in the case. Why had he written to NDMC seeking action against Khan? We demand that the LG be arrested and sacked from his position," AAP's Delhi Unit Convener Dileep Pandey said at a press conference.

"We also demand that the Delhi police should stop reporting to the LG and report to Ministry of Home Affairs," he added.

It has come to light that a day after Khan was murdered for allegedly refusing to take bribe from Delhi hotelier Ramesh Kakkar, Jung's office had purportedly sent Kakkar's petition against Khan to NDMC asking for "action as per law".

Khan, an estate officer of New Delhi Municipal Council(NDMC), was shot dead in Jamia Nagar a day before he was before he was scheduled to pass the final order on the lease terms of hotel 'The Connaught' which was functioning on a property of the civic body, on May 16.
