Congress opposes support of AAP on Center ordinance in Delhi

Just days after the Supreme Court ruled that Delhi’s elected government should have full control over transfers and appointments of bureaucrats in the capital, the Center was quick to push through a special law, making the Lieutenant-Governor, who is appointed by the Center from elsewhere, the final arbiter in the matter. The main opposition Congress is split on extending support for the Aam Aadmi party on the issue and a final decision is expected on Tuesday.

A meeting of the main leaders of the Congress of Punjab and Delhi is currently underway on the ordinance on the transfer of bureaucrats to Delhi. Senior Congress leaders Partap Singh Bajwa, Ajay Maken, Sandeep Dikshit and others are believed to be attending the meeting. According to people familiar with the developments, the Congress party has so far been unwilling to extend its support to the AAP government on the issue, citing a few crucial factors.

“The Congress Party has not taken any decision on the issue of the order against the SC judgment on the powers of the Delhi NCT Government in the appointment of officers. He will consult with his state units and other like-minded parties on this matter. Congress believes in the rule of law and at the same time does not tolerate unnecessary confrontations, political witch hunts and campaigns based on lies against political opponents by any political party,” the top leader KC Venugopal amid speculation that Congress was unanimously backing the AAP on blocking the ordinance.

Senior Congress official Ajay Maken has also denounced Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal’s about-faces regarding the AAP’s relationship with the BJP at the Centre. “Kejriwal asked for the support of the Congress, but his past political engagements often raised questions. His party, together with the BJP, passed a resolution asking the Center to remove the Bharat Ratna from Rajiv Gandhi. BJP inside and outside Parliament on the issue of Jammu and Kashmir. This support came when J&K was divided and reduced to union territory, leaving its people disenfranchised for five years,” he wrote on Twitter.

Maken also reiterated that Kejriwal was the first to implement the controversial anti-farmer laws. His party also opposed the opposition vice-presidential candidate Rajya Sabha and instead backed the BJP-sponsored candidate. Kejriwal’s support for the BJP in Gujarat, Goa, Himachal, Assam, Uttarakhand and in recent elections in Karnataka, has also been mooted by the Congress as it deliberates on whether to support the ‘AAP as he takes on the Center on the Transfer and Appointments of Bureaucrats.

The Congress pointed out that by supporting Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, the party would go against the decisions of many stalwarts like Baba Sahib Ambedkar, Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel, Lal Bahadur Shastri and most recently PV Narsimha Rao.

Congress leaders also said that if the ordinance is not passed, Kejriwal will get a unique privilege that was previously denied to Delhi chief ministers like Sheila Dikshit, Madan Lal Khurana, Sahib Singh Verma and Sushma Swaraj.

The Centre, by an ordinance, established the National Capital Civil Service Authority to decide on postings and transfers of civil servants. Its members will include the Chief Minister of Delhi, who will be the Chairman of the Authority, the Chief Secretary and the Principal Home Secretary. All questions to be decided by the Authority are decided by a majority of the votes of the members present and voting. In the event of a difference of opinion, the decision of the Lieutenant-Governor is final.
