Delhi CM, Arvind Kejriwal Said That The Centre's Stance Will "Lead To Anarchy"

New Delhi: A couple of days after, the Apex Court verdict that was meant to resolve a long-running conflict in Delhi, a new flashpoint was established by the meeting between the Lieutenant Governor and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The Delhi CM had accused the BJP-led Central government of openly violating the court verdict that said the Lt Governor controls only land, police and public order.Today, Anil Baijal, the Lt Governor said that he still has the power to appoint and transfer bureaucrats as the court is yet to decide on a 2015 home ministry order that handed the role to the Lieutenant Governor. The Delhi CM said the centre's stance will "lead to anarchy".

                                                                    

Here's 10 Points On The Big Story

1. Arvind Kejriwal said, "This is the first time in India's history that the Central government had openly refused to obey the order of the Supreme Court. This will set an incredibly worrying precedent."

2. He said,"They (the Centre) have an interest in not letting the Delhi government work," and layer added via tweeting, that he has sought a meeting with home minster Rajnath Singh "to urge him to follow Hon'ble SC's orders".

3. The Lieutenant Governor's office's communique said after the top court judgment, "the Ministry of Home Affairs has advised that as per concluding paras of judgement, the nine appeals including the one relating to 'Services' shall be taken up by the learned regular Bench and the MHA notification dated 21.05.2015 continue to be valid".

4. He further added that the Home Ministry has advised that "as per concluding paras of the (Supreme Court) judgement, the nine appeals including the one relating to 'Services' shall be taken up by the learned regular Bench and the MHA notification dated 21.05.2015 continue to be valid.

5. The Delhi CM earlier announced that the implementation of the doorstep ration delivery "overturning" the Lieutenant Governor's objections.

6. Just a few hours after the Supreme Court's verdict on Wednesday, Manish Sisodia the Deputy Chief Minister signed off an order that authorized the chief minister to transfer officers. He said, the top court had underscored that an elected government does not need a sign-off from the Lt Governor.

7. However, the bureaucrats, rejected the order, saying unless the 2015 government order is scrapped by the court or the Lt Governor, Mr Baijal remains in charge of services. The Supreme Court, they contended, has not cancelled the government order that brought services under the control of the Lieutenant Governor.

8. Union minister Arun Jaitley took to facebook to state that the Delhi government's reading of the verdict -- that the Supreme Court has given it administrative powers over union territory cadre officers -- was "wholly erroneous"

9. Mr Jaitley said that the court ruling, "does not either add to the powers of the state government or the central government nor does it in any way dilute them. It emphasises at the importance of elected state government, but Delhi being a union territory makes its powers subservient to the central government."

10. One of the first flashpoints between the Delhi government and the Lieutenant Governor was transfer and appointment of officials. Last month, alleging that the bureaucrats were on a "strike", Mr Kejriwal held a sit-in protest for nine days in Lt Governor's waiting room.
