Delhi's LG asked Kerjriwal to reconsider the bill on guest teachers

The Chief Minister, training his guns at Delhi LG Anil Baijal, said that he is an elected representative and "not a terrorist", PTI reported.

The bill aims at regularising the employment of around 15,000 guest teachers (working on contractual basis) in Delhi government-run schools.

As LG Baijal pointed out that the bill to regularise guest teachers was not within the limits of the Delhi Assembly and asked Kejriwal to reconsider the issue, AAP argued that the issue concerns education and not services.

Following three hours of discussion after deputy CM Manish Sisodia, also educa tion minister, presented the bill, Kejriwal stood up to reply to the debate. He said: "LG saab, don't hide files from us.What state secrets do these files contain that they can not be shown to us?"

"The guest teachers played a crucial role in Delhi government's education reform process as they had the skills and experience required to teach in government schools, said Sisodia".

He must have engaged in some irregularities that he does not want the world to know.

"We do not agree with the LG's assertion that the matter comes under services". Education does not just mean constructing schools.

The Delhi Government however, will call a special session of Delhi assembly to introduce the bill. "If AAP and BJP get together on this, in one week's time the jobs can be regularised", said Kejriwal.

He observed: "The foundation of the bill is flawed.One has to go by the rule of law, not rhetoric".

Reacting to Gupta's objection, Kejriwal said that through his offer of an instant dialogue, he wanted to expose the "hollowness" of the opposition.

Gupta hit back saying Kejriwal may be a good politician, but not a "capable administrator". In a joint conference, BJP state president Manoj Tiwari and Arvinder Singh Lovely said yesterday the use of unparliamentarily language by the Chief Minister in the Legislative Assembly should be fully condemned.
