NEW DELHI: Samajwadi Party (SP) chief Akhilesh Yadav and CPI (M) leader Brinda Karat met Delhi Water Minister Atishi at LNJP Hospital on Wednesday to enquire about her health.

Yadav said that the Centre has discriminated the most against the Delhi government and is using the CBI to frame him in a case to stall the functioning of the AAP dispensation. He alleged that the problems of chief ministers have increased since the BJP formed the government at the Centre.

Yadav said, “The Delhi chief minister wants to work for the people of Delhi. Kejriwal formed the government and worked to improve health, education and other facilities but the Centre is creating obstacles.”

The SP chief claimed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has been framing those who pose a threat to the BJP in different cases. “The Centre must have known that he (Kejriwal) will come out (of jail). To ensure that he does not come out, the government does not function and he does not go among the people, he was framed by the CBI.

“It is not the first time that the CBI has framed someone. They frame those who pose a threat. Misuse of the CBI and other institutions led to voting against the BJP,” Yadav said.

Karat criticised the Centre and the L-G for their discriminatory policies regarding Delhi’s water issues.

She said it is sad that the Centre and L-G are not fulfilling their responsibility and adopting a policy of discrimination against the water of the people of Delhi.

“I came here to meet Atishi. She is fighting very bravely for the people of Delhi. It is a matter of regret that the central government and the LG are dealing with the issue with bias. It is the people’s fight and not that of Atishi alone. I came here to salute her. She told me that she is waiting to return to the path of struggle,” she said.

Atishi has been on an indefinite hunger strike since March 21. The minister has been alleging that the Haryana government is not giving Delhi its rightful share of water.
