Ex-Union minister Harsh Vardhan leaves LG's swearing-in ceremony in anger

New Delhi: The swearing-in ceremony of Delhi's 22nd Lieutenant Governor (LG) Vinay Kumar Saxena witnessed a strange incident. When BJP MP and former Union minister Dr Harsh Vardhan, angry over not being able to find a place to sit for the event, left the ceremony. Vinay Saxena was administered the oath of office and secrecy by Delhi High Court Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi. Delhi CM and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal was also present at the swearing-in ceremony.

Getting angry even before the swearing-in of the Lieutenant Governor, Harsh Vardhan said, "For MPs, they have not even kept a seat. Saying so, Harsh Vardhan walked towards his car. He told Delhi Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar, "I will write to Lieutenant Governor Vinay Saxena in this regard.'' "Harsh Vardhan was not satisfied with where he was being made to sit. After taking the oath, the New Delhi LG Vinay said, "I want to tell the people of Delhi that I will work as a local guardian and not as a lieutenant governor. I will be seen on the streets more than in Raj Bhawan. Saxena was the chairman of the Khadi and Village Industries Commission since October 2015.''

Vinay Saxena was elected to the post on May 23 after Anil Baijal resigned as the Lieutenant Governor last week. Baijal was the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi for 5 years and 4 months. He resigned due to personal reasons.
