· Hon’ble LG enjoys unlimited powers without any responsibility & accountability.

· Hon’ble LG stalls issues of public interest saying, “I don’t think it’s a good idea”: CM

· Is the hon’ble LG accountable to Queen Elizabeth or President Trump?: CM

Chief Minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal on Friday said Delhi today is faced with a strange governance scenario, which appears unprecedented in any democratic set-up across the world.

The elected government which is responsible and accountable to the people has no power and the hon’ble Lieutenant Governor (LG) today enjoys unlimited powers without any responsibility and accountability.

Comparison of our government is being done with previous Delhi governments and particularly with the government of Mrs Shiela Dikshit, who was in office for 15 years.

Let us look at the reality:

· Shiela Dikshit government had the power of transfer/postings of officers. Her government could appoint good officers in important positions and transfer/penalize non-performing officers.

TRANSFERS/POSTINGS OF OFFICERS HAVE BEEN SNATCHED AWAY FROM OUR GOVERNMENT SINCE MAY 2015. NOW THE CHIEF MINISTER DOES NOT HAVE THE POWERS TO TRANSFER ANY EMPLOYEE.

· Shiela Dikshit government had the power to order vigilance probes on complaints received against officers.

THIS POWER HAS BEEN TAKEN AWAY FROM OUR GOVERNMENT

· Shiela Dikshit government had powers to arrest and jail corrupt officers

THIS POWER WAS SNACTHED AWAY BY THE MODI GOVERNMENT THREE MONTHS AFTER WE CAME TO POWER

· In Shiela Dikshit’s tenure, there was no requirement of sending every file to the hon’ble LG, therefore the hon’ble LG was not able to interfere in every decision of the elected government

NOW THE HON’BLE LG ASKS FOR EVERY FILE AND RAISES FRIVOLOUS OBJECTIONS LIKE “I DON’T THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA”, LEADING TO IMPORTANT DECISIONS BEING UNNECESSARILY DELAYED.

· Shiela Dikshit government had the power to carry out recruitment for filling up vacancies and fresh posts in Delhi government departments.

THIS POWER HAS NOW BEEN TAKEN OVER BY HON’BLE LG AND HE DOES NOT EVEN CONSULT THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT ON RECRUITMENTS.

CURRENT SITUATION IN DELHI CAN BE EASILY EXPLAINED THROUGH THIS EXAMPLE :

Let us for example assume that the Delhi Chief Minister is running a factory in which his top officials like the Managing Director, Chief Operating Officer, General Manager etc, are being appointed and managed by his biggest competitor.

So, the competitor will naturally appoint non-deserving and non-performing officials and will promote such officials so that the factory performance suffers, output falls and it suffers major losses to ultimately achieve the goal that the factory owner cannot produce desired results.

A real example is that the Chief Minister had requested the hon’ble LG in March last year (2017) to replace the Food Commissioner since there were largescale complaints about irregularities and corruption in ration distribution. In the course of last one year, this request was repeated thrice, but hon’ble LG chose to ignore it.

What is the relation between the hon’ble LG and the Food Commissioner? There has to be a reason for refusal to remove him even after large scale complaints.

Today, the elected government is being questioned about ration distribution despite all its efforts to improve the state of affairs even in the wake of such non-cooperation from hon’ble LG and his appointed officers.

Let the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) of the Delhi Vidhan Sabha and the CBI examine the ration distribution irregularities threadbare.

TO WHOM IS THE HON’BLE LG ACCOUNTABLE ?

The question bothering the residents of Delhi today is to whom is the hon’ble LG accountable?

Is he accountable to Queen Elizabeth of United Kingdom?

Is he accountable to the President of the United States?

Is he accountable to the Prime Minister or Home Minister of India?

IT APPEARS THE HON’BLE LG OF DELHI IS ACCOUNTABLE TO NONE
HON’BLE LG IS PRACTICALLY ACCOUTNABLE TO THE BJP, WHICH APPOINTED HIM. HE IS A POLITICAL APPOINTEE WHO IS INDULGING IN PURE POLITICS TO STRANGULATE THE ELECTED GOVERNMENT OF DELHI.

Such a scenario is against the basic structure of India’s Constitution, which makes it clear that our democracy believes in power of the people for the people by the people.

WHAT IS THE SOLUTION? WHAT IS THE WAY FORWARD?

In our view, powers of the government elected by the residents of Delhi should be restored without any further delay.

· Transfers/postings of officers working with the Delhi government can only be decided by the elected government.

· Services should be handed over to the elected government and vigilance powers can only be exercised by the government elected by the people.

· In matters where the Legislative Assembly has the competence to make laws, the powers to take decisions should be with the elected government and files of such matters should not be sent to hon’ble LG to avoid unnecessary hurdles and delays.

· Hon’ble LG should be allowed to exercise his difference of opinion with the council of ministers in matters mentioned in Reserved Subjects of the Constitution and in matters where functioning of the central government will be affected.

 

BJP के इशारे पर दिल्ली को ठप्प करना चाहते हैं उपराज्यपाल: CM

दिल्ली विधानसभा के बजट सत्र में दिल्ली के मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने विपक्ष में बैठी बीजेपी और उनके द्वारा अप्वाइंट किए गए उपराज्यपाल पर जमकर निशाना साधा।

मुख्यमंत्री अरविंद केजरीवाल ने विधानसभा में सदन को सम्बोधित करते हुए कहा कि दिल्ली सरकार के पास कोई शक्ति नहीं छोड़ रखी लेकिन सारी ज़िम्मेदारी और जवाबदेही हमारी तय कर दी गई है जबकि दिल्ली के उपराज्यपाल के पास सरकार की सारी शक्तियां हैं लेकिन उनके पास कोई जवाबदेही और ज़िम्मेदारी नहीं है। एलजी साहब बिना जवाबदेही के सारी शक्तियां का आनंद उठा रहे हैं।

हमने जितनी फ़ाइल भेजी उनमें से सारी महत्वपूर्ण फाइलों को एलजी साहब ने रिजेक्ट करके भेज दिया। LG साहब ने कबूला कि वो फाइलें उन्होंने खारिज कर दी। अक्सर गलत फैहमी फैलाई जाती है कि शीला जी के टाइम में तो कोई गड़बड़ी नही हुई, ये आप ही की सरकार है जो लड़ती रहती है। आपको बताना चाहेंगे कि शीला जी के पास जो पावर थी वो आज हमारी सरकार से सारी पॉवर छीन ली गई है। कौन-कौन सी पॉवर थी जो हमारी सरकार से छीन ली गई है। ये 5 पॉवर थी। वो किसी भी अफसर को ट्रासंफर कर सकती थीं।उसकी पोस्टिंग कर सकती थीं। उन्हें लगता था ये अफसर अच्छा है, अच्छा काम करता है, उसे ये पोस्टिंग दे दो। उनको ये लगता था ये अफसर गड़बड़ है, तो उनके पास पॉवर थी कि उसको हटा सकती थीं। मुझे बताया गया कि एक दो अफसर ऐसे है जिन्हें एक साल तक बिना पोस्टिंग के रखा गया था। अश्वनी कुमार को 7-8 महीने तक बिना पोस्टिंग के रखा था। क्योंकि वो ठीक काम नहीं कर रहे थे। उनके पास पावर थी ट्रासंफर और पोस्टिंग करने की। वो पॉवर हमारे आने के बाद हमसे केंद्र सरकार ने छीन ली। आज हम किसी भी अफसर की ट्रांसफर -पोस्टिंग नहीं कर सकते तो फिर उनसे काम कैसे कराएंगे? वो अफ़सर तो हमारी मानेगा ही नहीं।

दिल्ली में एलजी की तानाशाही

मुख्यमंत्री ने कहा कि हमने 300 फाइलें पॉलिसी से जुड़ी हुई एलजी साहब के पास भेजी लेकिन उन्होंने वापस लौटा दीं। हम आज कोई नई भर्तियां नहीं कर सकते,  हम किसी अफसर को जेल नहीं भेज सकते, छोटी-छोटी फाइल LG मांगते हैं। शहीदों के मुआवजे की फाइल भी LG ने रोकी, शहीदों को एक करोड़ का मुआवजा देती है सरकार, 2 साल तक फाइलों का जवाब नहीं आया। LG हेड मास्टर की तरह व्यवहार करते हैं, सारी शक्तियां एलजी साहब के पास हैं लेकिन उनके पास कोई जवाबदेही नहीं हैं, जबकि सारी जवाबदेही हमारे पास दे रखी है लेकिन हमें कोई पावर नहीं दे रखी।

      DELHI PEOPLE SHOULD FOLLOW GOANS.
      BJP+Congress+MGP wanted Goa to Merge with Maharashtra but Thanks GOD, HE sent Dr. Jack Sequeira to Save Goa from Merging into Maharashtra. Dr. Jack conducted Opinion Poll and Won the Election and GOA got Statehood. God has sent Arvind Kejriwal for the people of Delhi. All Delhi people should stand with AK and conduct Opinion Poll and Win and get Statehood for Delhi. All 7 MPs Seats and all 70 MLAs Seats will go for AAP and Delhi will become No.1 State in India. All The Best. God Bless Delhi people.

      THERE MUST BE ELECTION EVERY 5 YEARS TO CHOOSE GOVERNOR/PRESIDENT/ECI
      As Governor/President/ECI is connected with the issues of the People then people should choose Governor/President/ECI. There must be election every 5 years to choose the Governor/President/ECI. People should vote for their choice Governor/President/ECI, which will be For The People, By The People And From The People. Governor/President/ECI should be Non-Political and work for the People.
