Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Friday resigned after failing to table the Jan Lokpal bill in the assembly, ending 49 days of AAP rule in the capital.

“He is trying to pass the Jan Lokpal Bill. It feels they (Aam Aadmi Party) are unable to run the government and hence are looking for an exit.

Kejriwal has threatened several times in his 49-day government to resign if his pet anti-graft legislation is not passed by the Delhi assembly because of lack of support from other parties.

The example of seeking an opinion from noted lawyers on the Jan Lokpal Bill, but of the four lawyers three of them said that nobody approached them. “That means they are sperading falsehood,” he said.

Forty-nine days after he took charge of the Delhi government, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Friday resigned following a tumultuous day in the state assembly where combined Congress and BJP legislators “defeated” his party’s attempts to introduce its signal Jan Lokpal bill, which the Aam Admi Pary (AAP) says was meant to curb corruption in high places.

In political embarrassment for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, Kejriwal introduced the bill amid din in the assembly, but an aggressive Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders became strange bedfellows to force Speaker M.S. Dhir to go for voting.

In the voting, 42 members voted against the introduction of the bill, while only 27 MLAs – all AAP leaders – voted for it. Delhi assembly has a total strength of 70.

As it became apparent that the Congress, BJP and Janata Dal-United legislator Shoiab Iqbal and lone independent Rambeer Shokeen will not allow the AAP government to introduce the bill, Kejriwal and his senior cabinet colleague Manish Sisodia presented two appropriation bills that would empower the government to access funds for expenditure.

Kejriwal then stood up to speak, giving enough indication he was going to resign when he said that this “seems like our last (assembly) session”. He said it was more important to “fight corruption than to run a government”.

“Today, they did not let the Jan Lokpal bill to be introduced. It has been defeated,” declared a defiant and gesticulating Kejriwal.
