Arvind Kejriwal, the Chief Minister of Delhi, has delivered a fresh message to the Congress party from Chennai regarding the pending Delhi Government of National Capital Territory (GNCT) Amendment Bill. The bill, passed by the central government, seeks to grant more power to the Lieutenant Governor (LG) and limit the authority of the elected government in Delhi.
Kejriwal’s message to the Congress party, which has voiced its concerns over the bill, emphasizes the need for opposition parties to unite against what he perceives as an attack on democracy. He urges the Congress party to take a clear stand on the issue and join hands with other opposition parties in opposing the bill.
The Delhi GNCT Amendment Bill has been a source of contention between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government in Delhi, led by Kejriwal, and the central government. Kejriwal’s call for unity against the bill reflects his determination to safeguard the powers and autonomy of the elected government in Delhi.
Kejriwal’s message holds significance as it seeks to rally opposition parties in support of the elected government’s rights and to counter what he views as a threat to the democratic principles of governance. The response of the Congress party and other opposition parties to this call for unity remains to be seen, as the issue continues to be a subject of debate and political maneuvering.
