People of Delhi must be disappointed with the political drama going on in Delhi for government formation. Congress has sent a letter of unconditional support to the Lietuent governor to AAP and they have in turn created a twist by putting conditions on both BJP and Congress for accepting support. I don’t understand why Kejriwal has sent a letter to BJP president Rajnath Singh because BJP has not said to support AAP in government formation.
Let us look at the conditions that AAP has put on BJP and Congress for accepting support from them
1. VIP culture should be abolished
AAP wants no MLA and Minister should use red beacon car, should not get government bungalows’ and special security. AAP should have done a proper study before mentioning these things in their conditions, because MLA’s and ministers are not allocated red beacon car. The recent supreme court judgement also says the same. Why they are forcing everyone not to take government bungalows, they can just ask their MLA’s to don’t take them but why everyone should follow it. An MLA has to interact with a lot of people and has lots of rivals, why they should not get at least basic security ? Will Kejriwal take the responsibility of MLAs security
2. Special Session for passing Janlokpal at Ram Leela ground
If Assembly sessions are to be conducted on the Ram Leela ground then for what purpose legislative assembly is there ? When congress BJP is already supporting strong lokpaal this demand is ridiculous only.
3. Audit of power companies and 50% price reduction
You don’t need need support from assembly to order audit. Again a unnecessary demand. No party can oppose the reduction of electricity price.
4. Abolish MLA and Councillor fund
How can MLA or counselor do development related work without funds and what will be there use when they can’t do any development work ?
5. Free 700 liters of Water
The chief minister is the head of water board he can directly issue such order with the consent of the legislature. How government can maintain a steady supply of water without proper funds. Ground water is already going down and down and there is no arrangement to get water from Yamuna.
6. Investigation of all previous scams
Govt. Can order an investigation of anything it doesn’t require support of MLA’s. There is no sense in asking permission from BJP or congress in this
7. Declare Delhi as full state
Central government has the power to do it state government can’t alone. This question should be asked to congress as its ruling at the center.
8. Legalize all unauthorized colonies
Unauthorized colonies can authorize only after there is a proper layout plan and design map for them. This can’t be done overnight. The congress government legalized 895 colonies and their maps are yet to be passed.
9. Providing homes for people living in slums
Again this doesn’t require support from legislative assembly. The government can build free homes for them but from where the money will come for it?
10. Abolish contractorship and regularize all employees
This doesn’t require any support from other parties the cabinet can take this decision.
11. VAT should be revised
To revise the VAT government can take decision independently, don’t know why Kejriwaal wants permission of Congress BJP on this.
12. NO FDI in retail at Delhi
There is no compulsion for states to enforce FDI in retail, they can or cannot implement it on their will. Kerjiwaal as CM and independently take this decision.
13. A donation system should be abrogated from schools
This is the work of education minister and it requires only cabinet approval, not the approval of whole legislature. Asking support from BJP Congress again is useless.
14. Facilities at Government hospitals should be improved
To improve the facilities government does not have to pass any special act. Also no party will oppose this. Why AAP wants Congress BJP permission on this ?
15. Formation of special forces for women’s safety
This again can be done without the support from legislative assembly.
So here we can understand that most of the conditions put by AAP doesnt requires any special support from the MLA’s of BJP or Congress. So I dont understand the sense why Kejriwaal is putting conditions on them for government formation. All I feel is that they are trying to avoid government formation.
