Who authorised you to hold dharna at L-G house? Delhi HC asks Kejriwal govt

The Delhi High Court on Monday questioned Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the ongoing standoff with Lieutenant-General Anil Baijal and asked who had authorised Kejriwal and his ministers to sit on a dharna.

Hearing a petition against the weeklong sit-in at the L-G’s office, the Delhi High Court’s sharp rebuttal came on Tuesday when the court said, “Thing is that you’re sitting on a dharna. Who authorised them to sit on a dharna like this? This can’t be called a strike. You can’t go inside someone’s office or house and hold a strike there.”
