Ordinance issue: CM Kejriwal will get the support of Akhilesh Yadav!

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supremo Arvind Kejriwal is constantly meeting leaders to seek help from the opposition over the central government's ordinance to create a civil service authority in the country's capital Delhi. In this sequence, Kejriwal will meet Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday. According to AAP sources, the meeting of Kejriwal and the National President of the Samajwadi Party (SP) will be held in Lucknow. On May 23, Kejriwal had launched a countrywide tour to seek support from opposition parties against the ordinance.

Kejriwal has so far met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, Jharkhand CM Hemant Soren, Telangana CM K Chandrasekhar Rao, Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) president Sharad Pawar, Bihar CM  Nitish Kumar and Deputy Chief Minister Tejashwi Yadav to seek support against the central government.  

The central government had on May 19 promulgated an ordinance to notify the Government of National Capital Territory (NCR) Delhi (GNCTD) rules regarding 'transfer postings, vigilance and other relevant matters'. The ordinance has been brought to amend the Government of National Capital Territory (NCR) Delhi Act, 1991. This overturns the decision given by the Supreme Court in the Central Government vs Delhi Government case.  

What is the Delhi government and ordinance case?

In its May 11 order, the Supreme Court had said that the Delhi government has control over all work related to service matters, including transfer-posting. At the same time, apart from land, police, and public order, the central government was given control over the officers of all departments. As soon as this power was received, the Kejriwal government ordered the sealing of the official chambers 403 and 404 of the Special Secretary Vigilance in the Delhi Secretariat and    removed Vigilance Officer Rajasekhar from his post. But, the central government brought an ordinance and then Rajasekhar got his post back. After this, it was revealed that Rajshekhar was investigating the Delhi liquor scam and crores of rupees spent on CM Kejriwal's bungalow. After his removal from the post, it was also revealed that the files kept in his office were tampered with. A video had gone viral, in which 2-3 people were seen scanning files in Rajshekhar's office at midnight.   In such a situation, Congress leaders Sandeep Dikshit and Ajay Maken are saying that Kejriwal is opposing this ordinance not for the people of Delhi, but to save himself. At the same time, these two leaders have appealed to the Congress not to support Kejriwal.
