He further stated that the provisions of governing administration in Delhi emanate out of serious deliberations in the “Constituent Assembly, State Reorganization Commission and Parliament of India, apart from having been clearly interpreted by the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India on several occasions."

While inviting him for a meeting, which he said, were on hold due to Arvind Kejriwal’s preoccupation state Assembly and municipal elections, VK Saxena said, “While the same are amply clear for any practitioner of Statecraft, lawyer, scholar as indeed a common citizen concerned with it, for the sake of ample clarity, I would like to invite you for a meeting where we could discuss issues threadbare."

VK Saxena said since the elections are over, “it will be in the fitness of things that such meetings are resumed in the interest of consciously deliberative and conflict-free governance of the city, in the interest of its people."
