Pahle AAP, Pahle AAP
Hope now both CM and Governor understand their roles as described by the Supreme Court and serve the people of Delhi in good faith.
The news report about Lieutenant Governor bound by aid and advice of elected Delhi Government, rules the
Supreme Court was the most interesting and timely news. Hopefully no excuses will now be made for non performance. Now the Delhi government is free to deliver good schemes for the public. Hope no hindrance to the AAP government. No cooperation till the verdict. Everything is decided by Apex court only. Well done.
LG vs Delhi AAP
The judgment delivered by the honourable Court in the curious case of LG vs Delhi AAP government headed by CM Arvind Kejriwal is welcome. But the moot question arises whether Delhi elected Government is capable enough to provided good aid and advice to the LG on sensitive issues for the welfare and benefit of the citizen of the capital city of India. Therefore, it is the foremost duty of the LG to review these advises in critical manner and decides on the merits accordingly without any hindrance and in positivism to make city better in all respects especially with transparency and accountability. Hopefully, positive nexus between two bodies may be able to yield fruitful results.
This historical judgment of our Supreme Court particularly CJI Justice Dipak Mishra is in the favour of elected government - Delhi government, which may be defined by the related parties as per their interests and outlooks as ever. However, this verdict of Supreme Court is a balanced decision having many checks and balances. The long bickering and allegation against the LG now ends with the historical judgment by the honourable Supreme Court. The Court has clearly interpreted the
This is one of the great judgments awarded by the apex court of India both from the point of view polity and also from political angles. Now all eyes will be on Aam Aadmi Party for the promises they made will be fulfilled as they don't have any excuse to make from now on.
provisions of the Constitution and the limitations of the LG vis-àvis the elected
Government. Also, the demand for statehood by the AAP Government is set to rest by the Court. Indeed a great judgment by the apex Court which is welcomed by one and all.
It is only back to square one. It all depends on individual incumbents. Shadow-boxing is bound to continue, perhaps with less acrimony. Separate statehood for Delhi is the only lasting solution. This is one of the great judgments awarded by the apex court of India both from the point of view polity and also from political angles. Now all eyes will be on Aam Aadmi Party for the promises they made will be fulfilled as they don't have any excuse to make from now on.
The Supreme Court has correctly pointed out that the LG and the Delhi CM should function cordially and LG will discharge his duties duly cooperating to the CM. That does not mean that LG should be a Rubber Stamp and Yes Master. The LG has been advised to clear the proposals duly furnishing his observations at the same time. Law maker must accept their responsibilities and should consider that they have been vested with powers to treat the officials who have been duly appointed by proper selection boards.
At the end of the day what matters is that every act of the elected government is for the common man and long term good of all the people with no abuse of power due to what can be termed as brutal majority. One hopes that AAP keeps this cardinal principal in mind and maintain harmonious relationship with the LG, shedding its controversial approach. There is a need for real discipline and wisdom.
Both CM and Governor are to be blamed for this sorry state of affairs because all these years of different Party that ruled Delhi never spatted like this which only shows that AAP government follows the path of confrontation and find fault with each of the decisions of the LG. Hope now both CM and Governor understand their role as described by the Court and serve the people of Delhi in good faith. Delhi is not a state and, therefore, there could be no assumption that powers which belongs to state governments also belongs to the elected government of the Union Territory.
