Delhi Chief Minister Arvind KejriwalNew Delhi:
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to opposition leaders ahead of the meeting to be held in Bihar's capital Patna on June 23. Kejriwal has urged that in this meeting of opposition parties, first of all, there should be a discussion on defeating the ordinance brought in Delhi in Parliament. The Aam Aadmi Party convener said the Delhi ordinance is an experiment and if successful, the Central government will take away the state government's right from the subject list by bringing similar ordinances for non-BJP states.
Cm Kejriwal said that democracy will end from Delhi if the ordinance is implemented. The Centre will run the government through lg, after Delhi, similar democracy will be abolished from other states as well.
He said the day is not far when the Prime Minister will run all the state governments through 33 Governors and LGs.

What is in the Centre's ordinance?
The Centre had recently promulgated an ordinance to set up the National Capital Civil Services Authority for transfer and disciplinary action against Indian Administrative Service (IAS) and Danix cadre officers. The ordinance was brought after the Supreme Court handed over control of matters other than those related to police, public order and land to the elected government in Delhi. Within six months of the promulgation of the ordinance, the Centre will have to replace it with a bill in Parliament.
