New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday removed Service Secretary Ashish More, a day after the
Supreme Court ruled that he would be the new Chief Minister of Delhi for the post of Chief Minister of Delhi for the post of Chief Minister of Delhi (Law and Order). The Delhi government has alleged that the LG has put a stay on the decision. The LG is doing this despite the Supreme Court's order. This is contempt of court order. However, later LG passed the file.
On May 19, seven days after the
Supreme Court's decision, the Central government issued an ordinance on the powers of the Delhi government. According to the ordinance, the final decision on the transfer-posting of officers in Delhi will be taken by the Lieutenant Governor i.e. LG. The Chief Minister will have no authority in this. A law related to this will also be made in Parliament within 7 months.
After this, the central government filed a review petition
against the Supreme Court's decision on May 20. The Centre appealed to the Supreme Court to reconsider the May 11 verdict given by the constitutional bench.
After this, Arvind Kejriwal is engaged in gathering the support of the opposition against this ordinance. He is hopeful that the ordinance will not be passed in the Rajya Sabha with the support of opposition parties. Kejriwal has already sought time to meet party president Mallikarjun Kharge and Rahul Gandhi to seek support for the Congress.
