With Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party opting to support the BJP-led government in parliament on two significant votes, including a no-confidence motion on Manipur, the Center’s bill for the control of services in Delhi is expected to pass both chambers of parliament.
The YSR Congress Party, which has 22 members in the Lok Sabha and nine in the Rajya Sabha, has frequently backed the government on important legislation.
The government can easily pass its contentious Delhi law through the Rajya Sabha, where it lacks a majority, with the support of members of the YSR Congress Party.
The Supreme Court’s ruling that the elected government in Delhi, not the Centre, controls the transfer and appointment of bureaucrats is repealed by the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) bill. The ordinance was issued by the Centre to circumvent the Supreme Court’s ruling.
Leader of the YSR Congress Party V Vijaysai Reddy declared, “We will vote in favour of the government on both matters.
In the Lok Sabha voting on the Manipur crisis no-confidence motion filed by the opposition, the party’s 22 MPs will increase the government’s representation. The Lok Sabha Speaker has approved two notices for a no-trust resolution, which is likely to be defeated and is more of a symbolic action by the INDIA coalition of opposition parties to compel Prime Minister Narendra Modi to address Manipur in the House of Representatives.
The BJP is being accused of attempting to undermine the rule of law while attempting to seize control of officers in the city, according to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which is now in power in Delhi. Arvind Kejriwal, the head of the AAP and the mayor of Delhi, visited chief ministers and leaders of opposition parties across the nation in an effort to win their support.
Despite their fierce antagonism, particularly in Delhi and Punjab, the Congress came out in favour of the AAP last week.
That doesn’t do much to advance AAP’s case because the government holds a commanding majority in the Rajya Sabha.
At 238 members, the Rajya Sabha presently enjoys a majority of 120.
In the 105-member National Democratic Alliance (NDA), the BJP and its allies are represented. Five nominated MPs and two independent MPs give the ruling party additional assurance of their support.
With 112 votes in favour, the government falls eight votes shy of the new majority threshold. A total of 105 members oppose the Delhi Ordinance.
