Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung may be on the way out and is tipped to be replaced by a former LG. Jung is being blamed by the BJP’s Delhi unit for the party’s humiliating defeat in the assembly elections.
BJP members said that in the past eight months the LG failed to provide good governance and carry out development work. He couldn’t resolve the pension issue resulting in lakhs of old people and widows not being given dues for nearly a year. His lack of improvement in the functioning of Delhi administration was viewed as the central government’s failure to perform, members said.
