The Bill gives more powers to the Lieutenant Governor - the centre's delegate in Delhi - contrasted with the city's chosen government, and supposedly is a gigantic mishap for the Arvind Kejriwal government, which has had a running protest with the Lieutenant Governor since 2013, when the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) first came to control in Delhi.
Mallikarjun Kharge, the Leader of Opposition, said the Bill was pointed toward grabbing the powers of the chosen government. "This is an exceptionally risky Bill. It will annihilate democracy rule government. You want to make the Lieutenant Governor the 'public authority' and the chosen regulation his worker," Mr Kharge, a senior Congress leader, said in Rajya Sabha.
Tumult emitted when Deputy Chairman Harivansh Narayan Singh requested Minister of State for Home Affairs, G Kishan Reddy, to table the Bill. AAP supporter Sanjay Singh challenged permitting the movement, saying his notification has been forthcoming in the House. The Deputy Chairman guaranteed the AAP member that his notification would be considered after the movement on the Bill was moved, yet Sanjay Singh called it "illegal".
The new Bill clarifies that the expression "government" in any law made by the Legislative Assembly will mean the Lieutenant Governor and his assessment must be taken before the Delhi government makes any move.
Arvind Kejriwal yesterday called the passing of the Bill in the Lok Sabha an "affront" to individuals of Delhi. "The Bill adequately removes powers from the individuals who were casted a ballot by individuals and offers forces to run Delhi to the individuals who were crushed. BJP has conned individuals," tweeted the Chief Minister.
