BJP president JP Nadda took an aim at Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not bringing in Jan Lokpal law and instead accused him of running his party like a dictator. He targeted the Aam Aadmi Party chief over the promised transparency law and stated that there is a "rule of arrogance" in Delhi.

Taking to Twitter, JP Nadda wrote, "He who couldn't belong to his mentor Anna Hazare, can belong to no one. There was a promise of a strong Jan Lokpal under which the Chief Minister would also come. Where is the Jan Lokpal that will bring 'Ramrajya' to Delhi? Recall, Kejriwal attacked his party's internal ombudsman, Admiral Ram Das, and fired him."

Where is Swaraj?

The BJP Rajya Sabha MP took a jibe at CM Kejriwal in a following tweet saying, "Neither Jan Lokpal nor Swaraj, only the rule of arrogance. Kejriwal Ji, where is the AAP's Swaraj Bill?  You talked about Swaraj through Mohalla Sabha and Delhi Dialogue. Not a single meeting has been held to date. Whoever questioned your dictatorship and corruption, you removed him from the party."

BJP govt appoints Lokpal 5 years into power

Interesting to note that India's first Lokpal was appointed just weeks before the 2019 Lok Sabha elections. The Modi government was obligated to appoint the top anti-corruption watchdog after the Supreme Court issued special directions to do so. The position was assumed by former SC judge PC Ghose in March 2019, nearly five years after the BJP government came to power. Then Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi had opposed the appointment of a Lokayukta.
