As reported by the official sources of MEA, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will not be going to attend the C-40 Climate Summit in Denmark. The leader has been denied permission by the External Affairs Ministry.

According to the Delhi government, Arvind Kejriwal was slated to leave for the event at 2 pm today. However, owing to the MEA’s decision to not grant political clearance, the leader would not be attending this event now. Though it has been reported that West Bengal Urban Development Minister Firhad Hakim has been granted permission for the same by MEA. It might increase the political tension between the Center and the Delhi government.

Delhi Chief Minister was expected to speak at the C-40 Summit on his government’s efforts in lowering air pollution in the city. Over his tenure, the Delhi government has been successful in reducing the pollution by 25 percent. He was set to lead a team of 8 members and address a session titled “Breathe deeply“. C-40 summit will take place between October 9 and 12.

This is not the first time that the Union government had denied permission to the AAP leader for attending any event overseas. Last year, the center also denied Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia permission to attend an educational event in Austria.

Speaking on the matter, the MEA spokesperson said, “I do not answer query specific to political clearance. And if you understand how it functions, we get hundreds of requests for political clearances every month from ministries, secretaries, bureaucrats. A decision is based on multiple inputs.
