Former Delhi CMs too had Parliamentary Secretaries: Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi, June 15 :  Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday asked the BJP and the Congress why they were questioning his government for appointing MLAs as Parliamentary Secretaries when they themselves did it.

Taking the names of former chief ministers, Kejriwal told the media that BJP leader Sahib Singh Verma appointed a legislator as his Parliamentary Secretary in 1997.

“It is okay when the BJP does it. But when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) does it, it becomes unconstitutional,” Kejriwal said, adding his predecessor Sheila Dixit had also appointed Ajay Maken as her Parliamentary Secretary when she was the chief minister.
