CM Kejriwal Expressed Annoyance Over Lt Governor’s Meeting Over Covid Situation

The Delhi government has alleged the Lieutenant Governor for holding a gathering on COVID-19 straightforwardly with officials “behind the back of an elected government”. A tweet by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with this impact is probably going to worsen rough ties between the AAP government and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal over blurry lines on how best to run the national capital.

“It is against the Constitution and Supreme Court judgement to hold such parallel meetings behind the back of an elected government. We are democracy. People have elected a Council of Ministers. If you have any questions, please ask your ministers. Avoid holding direct meetings with officers. Let’s respect democracy, sir,” said Mr Kejriwal tweeting on a post on the meeting by Lt Governor’s office.

The Kejriwal government has been especially felt insulted by an amendment in the law on administering the national capital, which cleared parliament in March this year, as in its view the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) or GNCTD Act gave more powers to the Lt Governor as compared with the city’s elected government.

The central government kept up with the amended law would additionally characterize the obligations of the elected government and the Lt Governor in accordance with the constitutional plan of administration, as deciphered by the Supreme Court. A blurry line of obligations has been the greatest place of contention between the Lt Governor’s office and the Aam Aadmi Party government since the time it came to control in the national capital in 2013.

The Delhi Chief Minister Mr Kejriwal had called the new amended GNCTD Act an “insult” to the citizens of Delhi.

“Reviewed the COVID-19 situation in Delhi and future preparedness with Chief Secretary, ACS (Home and Health), Divisional Commissioner, Secretary (Health), MD-DMRC and other officials concerned,” tweeted the Lt Governor.

In further measures, Mr Baijal requested that officials to make sure all liquid oxygen plants are made functional and media oxygen stockpiling tanks are kept fit basically before the month is over.

The steps to ensure the availability of sufficient medicines for Covid and Black Fungus were also talked about. “Concern was expressed regarding reported violation of Covid appropriate behaviour in Metro and other means of public transport,” the Lt Governor tweeted.
