AAP can’t rule like anarchists: BJP

New Delhi, Aug 4 (IANS) The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Thursday welcomed a High Court decision that the Aam Aadmi Party(AAP) government cannot supersede constitutional provisions and rule like anarchists.

“The High Court’s decision is correct because they were not following the constitutional provisions in Delhi. They were superseding the constitutional provisions which is unconstitutional,” Delhi BJP unit chief Satish Upadhyay told IANS.

The Delhi High Court on Thursday said that the Lt. Governor (LG) is not bound by the aid and advice of the Delhi government’s council of ministers. It further added that that Delhi government notifications must be issued after consulting the LG.

“The court has made it clear to them that they have to govern Delhi under the constitutional provisions,” the BJP leader said, adding, “The role of a LG and Chief Minister is defined in the constitution for an union territory.”

In a major set back for the AAP government, the court also added that the that Anti-Corruption Branch cannot initiate investigation against central government officials.

The court’s judgement came on nine different petitions arising out of the spat between the LG and Delhi’s AAP government over the power to appoint bureaucrats in the national capital and other issues.
