Arvind Kejriwal is challenging an ordinance passed by the central government that established a National Capital Civil Service Authority. This ordinance, which in essence reverses a Supreme Court judgment that gave control over bureaucrats to the government in Delhi, is the target of Kejriwal’s challenge.
On Tuesday afternoon in Kolkata, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met with his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee. This meeting took place as part of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s nationwide tour to rally support for his fight against the Centre’s law on control of services in Delhi.
Kejriwal is challenging the federal ordinance that established a National Capital Civil Service Authority. This ordinance, which was enacted last week, essentially overturns a Supreme Court judgment that was passed the previous week that gave control of services, excluding those connected to police, public order, and land, to the elected government in Delhi. Kejriwal is challenging this ordinance in order to protect the rights of the people of Delhi.
Arvind Kejriwal is being accompanied by Bhagwant Mann, who is the Chief Minister of Punjab and a leader in the AAP. They are scheduled to be in Mumbai by the evening, and upon arrival, they will most likely meet with the head of the Shiv Sena (UBT), Uddhav Thackeray, as well as the chief of the NCP, Sharad Pawar.
Additional AAP representatives, such as Raghav Chadha and Atishi, traveled to Kolkata in order to meet with the Chief Minister of Bengal.
“Today, I will begin traveling across the country to advocate for the rights of the people living in Delhi,” I said. The people of Delhi were granted justice as a result of a decision handed down by the Supreme Court. By bringing the ordinance into effect, the Central Government has usurped those rights, as stated by Kejriwal in a tweet.
When it is brought up in the Rajya Sabha, precautions need to be taken to guarantee that it is not approved. He went on to say, “I will meet with the leaders of all political parties and ask for their support.”
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has also made the announcement that it will host a “maha rally” against the “black ordinance” on June 11 at Ramlila Maidan in Delhi.
Kejriwal had already met with Nitish Kumar, the chief minister of Bihar, to discuss the ordinance issue, and Kumar had offered his complete support to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in its fight with the Central Government over the topic.
The National Capital Civil Service Authority is established by the central ordinance, and the chief minister is designated to serve as the authority’s sole representative of the elected government. The authority will be responsible for handling both the transfer of officers from the IAS and DANICS cadres as well as matters pertaining to disciplinary actions against those officers.
Within a period of six months, Parliament is required to provide its approval to the central ordinance. In order to accomplish this, the Center will be required to present a measure to both houses of parliament in order for it to be passed.
