Delhi Vs Center: The Arvind Kejriwal government of Delhi has reached the Supreme Court against the ordinance brought by the Center regarding transfer-posting of officers. In its petition, the Delhi government has termed the central government's ordinance as illegal and unconstitutional. The Delhi government, while hearing the petition immediately, has demanded a ban on the ordinance. Along with this, the Aam Aadmi Party has also decided to burn a copy of the ordinance on 3 July.

On May 11, the Supreme Court, while giving its verdict on the petition of the Kejriwal government, had ordered to hand over the controlling power of all the services in Delhi to the elected government, except for matters related to police, public order and land. The Supreme Court had said that the Delhi government has the right to transfer-posting officers in Delhi. Along with this, the court had also made it clear that the Lieutenant Governor cannot interfere in every right of the elected government of Delhi.

This decision of the Supreme Court was considered a big victory for the Kejriwal government, but the matter took a new turn when on May 19, the central government overturned the court's order by bringing an ordinance. Through its ordinance, the central government gave back the right of transfer-posting of officers to the lieutenant governor. In the ordinance, the government talked about setting up the National Capital Civil Service Authority.

The government said – Delhi is not a common state

Behind bringing the ordinance, it has been argued by the Central Government that Delhi is not a common state, it is the capital of the country and right from the Supreme Court to the Parliament and the Rashtrapati Bhavan are located. Many big officers of the country live in Delhi only. In such a situation, if there is any mistake, then it will tarnish the image of India in the country and the world. The government said that the decision taken in Delhi affects not only the people living here but the people of the entire country.

Delhi BJP told double standard

In the case of the ordinance, the BJP, the ruling party at the center, has called the Delhi government's decision to go to the Supreme Court as a double standard. Delhi BJP spokesperson Harish Khurana has said that it is your right to go to the Supreme Court against the ordinance, but for this Arvind Kejriwal is adopting double standards. He further said that no matter how much Kejriwal insists, this ordinance will be presented in this monsoon session of Parliament.
