Pahle AAP, Pahle AAP

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.

Com­mon Man

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.
