AAP Calls Centre's Advice To L-G On Services Issue "Highly Misleading"(file image)

New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party said that the centre's advice to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi on the issue of services - transfers and postings of bureaucrats - was "highly misleading". They added that it aimed at delaying the Supreme Court's verdict on power tussle between the two constitutional functionaries.

LG Anil Baijal, has been adviced by the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) to not to take a final view on the matters related to the services as the top court's decision on the issue was still pending.

A statement was issued by AAP, saying that the centre and the LG are "trying to delay the smooth functioning of the elected government" in Delhi.

The Delhi's ruling party has also stated that the MHA's views on the landmark ruling was aimed at subverting the rule of law.

"The MHA views on the landmark five-judge Constitution Bench judgement of the Supreme Court of India are highly misleading and are aimed at subverting the rule of law.

"The MHA advice to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi which, the ministry said, is based on the Union Law Ministry's advice, is a clear attempt to spread deliberate misinformation with the intention of delaying implementation of the landmark Supreme Court verdict," the party said in its statement.

The MHA was now trying to divert attention from the issue, as claimed by the party.

The Aam Aadmi Party had claimed that the apex court has "reversed" the May 21, 2015 notification by which the Ministy of Home Affairs was made the authority for transfers and postings of bureaucrats in Delhi. Also, the Centre has taken the stand that matter of services was still pending in the Supreme Court.

The judgemen of the apex court made on July 4  had ruled that the LG has no independent power to take decisions. The court also stated that the LG is bound by the elected government's advice.

The Supreme court said that apart from the the three issues of public order, police and land, the Delhi government has the power to legislate and govern on other issues.

However, the judgement made it clear that under the constitutional scheme, Delhi cannot recieve the status of a state .
