The government in Delhi, the capital of the nation, presently implies the Lieutenant Governor. Since the Central Government has now advised the bill passed by both the houses after the endorsement of the President. This implies that from today this law has come into power in Delhi. Execution of this law implies that assuming we take a choice of the Delhi government in Delhi, it can’t be carried out without the endorsement of the Lieutenant Governor.
Who is the manager of Delhi? This question was continuously arising for the last several years, on which the Central Government had brought the bill during the budget session last month and made it clear that the government in Delhi would mean the Lieutenant Governor. A month ago, this bill was passed by both the places of Parliament, which was advised yesterday or on 27th April after the President’s approval.
The notice gave by the Union Home Ministry expresses, “The Government (Amendment) Act 2021 of the National Capital Territory of Delhi is advised with impact from 27 April”. This means that now the Delhi government cannot take any step on its own without the approval of the Lieutenant Governor. That is, if the Delhi government takes a decision, then it will be sent to the Lieutenant Governor, and only after the consent of both of them, a decision will be implemented in Delhi.
As indicated by the law which has been advised in Delhi, from this point forward, the Delhi government should send an authoritative proposition to the Lieutenant Governor at any rate 15 days ahead of time and regulatory recommendations in any event 7 days ahead of time. This would imply that if the Delhi government needs to carry out a law in Delhi or needs to make a choice, at that point the data identified with it should be given to the Lieutenant Governor first and that choice can be implemented in Delhi only after the approval of the Lieutenant Governor.
This is a similar law, when the bill was being examined in the Parliament and the bill was presented, there was a lot of opposition from all the opposition parties. The Central Government had passed this bill his bill with a majority from both houses of Parliament. Contradicting this bill, every one of the pioneers including the Chief Minister of Aam Aadmi Party government, Arvind Kejriwal continued saying that that the central government is trying to take away the powers of the elected government of Delhi through this law. Arvind Kejriwal even raised the question that what is the meaning of holding elections in Delhi and choosing the government, if the Delhi government cannot take any decision in the public interest.
