Congress opposes appointment of parliamentary secretaries in Delhi

New Delhi, June 29 (IANS) The Congress on Monday opposed the Delhi government’s move to regularise the appointment of 21 Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators as parliamentary secretaries.

“This is a desperate effort by an under-confident chief minister who wants to accommodate his party MLAs in VIP berths in order to keep them united,” party spokesperson Ajay Maken said at a press conference here.

He added that Arvind Kejriwal led-Aam Aadmi Party government had gone ahead to pass a bill in the Delhi assembly to regularise the appointment.

The Delhi Members of Legislative Assembly (Removal of Disqualification Amendment) Bill, 2015, was introduced by Law and Justice Minister Kapil Mishra and passed on June 24 during the Delhi assembly budget session.

Soon after coming to power, the Kejriwal-led government issued an order to appoint 21 AAP legislators as parliamentary secretaries attached to government ministries, claiming it would facilitate smooth functioning.
