"Delhi's ordinance is undemocratic. Arvind Kejriwal has the full support of the Samajwadi Party. Akhilesh Yadav said, "Arvind Kejriwal's government is doing a better job in terms of education and health. THE BJP is scared of the AAP government."
media briefing, Arvind Kejriwal thanked Akhilesh Yadav for his support. "Had a long conversation with Akhilesh Yadav. The people of Delhi have voted and elected us. Three months later, our powers were taken away. The Modi government had taken away the powers of the Delhi government by issuing a notification. After 8 years of fighting, our powers were restored. It took 8 years for the people of Delhi to get their rights. But after 8 days, the Modi government issued an ordinance and canceled the notification. When the ordinance comes inside Parliament, it will definitely be passed in the Lok Sabha, but the BJP does not have a majority in the Rajya Sabha. Thank you Akhilesh Yadav on behalf of 2 crore people of Delhi. They have assured to support us."
Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann, Delhi minister Atishi, AAP MP Sanjay Singh and SP leader Shivpal Singh Yadav were also present on the occasion. Punjab CM Bhagwant Mann said, "This fight is not of the people of Delhi, but of 140 crore people. The government is harassed through the governor. People will have to differentiate between elected and selected. Many people from Uttar Pradesh live in Delhi. Our government is being harassed in Punjab. The governor also constantly harasses us. Raj Bhavan has become the headquarters of the BJP and the Governor has become the star campaigner. Bjp shows delhi's schools to foreign guests. SP is a party born out of the JP movement. Akhilesh Yadav is with us in the fight for democracy."
Arvind Kejriwal has so far received the support
of 9 parties against the Center's ordinance in the transfer-posting case of Delhi. Earlier, Arvind Kejriwal has met several leaders including West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar, Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, Telangana Chief Minister KCR, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) Chief Sharad Pawar and former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray.

Supreme Court ruled that government officials in Delhi will be controlled by the elected government. "Except for public order, police and land, the Lieutenant Governor shall act only with the advice and cooperation of the Delhi government," the five-judge Constitution bench said.
On May 7, 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 19 months.
On May 19, the Central government reached the Supreme Court just a day after bringing an ordinance on transfer-posting in
Delhi. The Centre has appealed to the Supreme Court to reconsider the May 11 verdict given by the constitutional bench.
