Singapore withdraws summit invite to Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal
NEW DELHI: The Singapore government has withdrawn its invitation to chief minister Arvind Kejriwal to participate in World Cities Summit 2022 saying it cannot accept further additions to the plenary since the acceptance deadline of July 20 has lapsed, sources privy to the development said on Thursday.
Kejriwal was invited by the High Commissioner of Singapore, Simon Wong, in June to speak at the WCS Plenary “Liveable & Sustainable Cities: Combating the Climate Crisis”. While the CM had sent his file for the visit to LG VK Saxena for clearance on June 7, the latter had returned it on July 21 advising that it was a “conference of mayors not befitting attendance by a chief minister”.
今年6月，凯杰里瓦尔收到新加坡高级专员Simon Wong的邀请，邀请其在WCS全体会议“宜居和可持续城市：应对气候危机”上发表演讲。虽然他在6月7日向LG VK Saxena递交了申请访问文件，以获得批准，但后者在7月21日返回文件，称这是“市长会议，不适合首席部长出席”。
The summit is taking place from July 31 to August 3 and Kejriwal was expected to speak on August 1.
After the rejection of his file by LG, Kejriwal had said that he would “go ahead” with the visit and had asked his team to apply for “political clearance” on the online portal of the ministry of external affairs. He had also written to PM Narendra Modi earlier this month that blocking a chief minister from attending such an event was “against the interests of the nation”.
Reacting to the development, Delhi government said only the Centre “can be held responsible for the CM not being able to attend the World Cities Summit and the subsequent humiliation the country has had to face”.
Only world class thing he has done is how to self advertise on governments money & how to talk lies
Kejriwal the glorified CM of a municipality
This is a cheap publicity efforts by Arvind kejriwal who has no contribution for Delhi worsening civic amenities. His policies has created ruckus in healthy functioning of Delhi city corporation.

what would this idiot do in singapore ? he hasn't done anything siginificant so far for Delhi and just keeps barking.
He should have been allowed to go as he is the CM of one of the most unlivable Metro Cities of the World where Pollution is shortening the lives of people.,He would have been able to tell the audience what not to do....
What world class is about Delhi. Compare to Singapore it's a slum conglomerate. Small rains, Delhi roads are flooded, power cut.
He hasnt managed to make Delhi more sustainable with continued pollution and has only blame ...
Now watch him cribbing......he is famous for !!
kachrawala is very angry now he will boycott Singapore
KEJRIWAL IS GOING TO BE THE MOST DANGEROUS ANTI-HINDU, PRO-ISLAM GREEDY BANIA , AFTER nEHUR AND GANDHI! BUT INDIAN PEOPLE DO NOT CARE AS WE ALL ARE SELFISH, CORRUPT AND DO NOT CARE ABOUT OUR NATION!

No one cares to hear him out in India, so he wants some new people to drive crazy with his rants.
Now he will accuse Modi for this too.
