BJP asks Arvind Kejriwal to withdraw 'dictatorial' circular asking govt school teachers to attend swearing-in ceremony; deserve to be invited, says DDCD official

New Delhi: Newly-elected Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) MLA Vijender Gupta wrote to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday requesting him for withdrawing a circular that made it "compulsory" for government school teachers to attend his oath-taking ceremony as Delhi chief minister.

Gupta, leader of Opposition in the previous Assembly, called the Friday's circular "dictatorial" that shattered his belief that Kejriwal's focus after coming back to power would be on governance and strengthening democratic ethos. "By virtue of the order, 15,000 teachers and officials will have to attend the oath ceremony," Gupta wrote in his letter to Kejriwal.

Gupta, who has been re-elected from Rohini constituency, said he would attend Kejriwal's oath-taking ceremony at the Ramlila ground on Sunday.

Reacting to Gupta's objection, the vice chairman of Delhi Dialogue and Development Commission, Jasmine Shah, said teachers and principals were "architects" of Delhi's transformation in the past five years and they "deserved to be invited" for the swearing-in ceremony.

The AAP returned to power after winning 62 of the 70 Assembly seats in the Delhi assembly election. Kejriwal and his cabinet members will take oath in a grand ceremony on Sunday.
