AAP cries foul after Kejriwal’s Denmark visit stalled

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Tuesday criticized the Centre for withholding sanction to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal to attend the C40 Cities Climate Summit in Copenhagen.

The Delhi Chief Minister, one of the eight-member delegation scheduled to fly to Denmark on Tuesday afternoon, was not given clearance by the External Ministry.

  “This was no personal visit, he [Kejriwal] was not going for sightseeing. He was going to talk among Mayors of 100 cities of Asia, how pollution was reduced by 25% in Delhi... But you cancelled a Chief Minister’s visit. You have made a joke out of the whole system.” AAP leader Sanjay Singh was quoted as saying.
