Delhi | The Deputy Governor of Delhi is now the real ‘government’, the GNCTD bill has been approved by the President

New Delhi: President Ramnath Kovind’s approval of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill 2021 has now become law. The law will now give the lieutenant governor extra powers. The bill has been opposed by the Kejriwal government in Delhi.

A bill giving preference to the lieutenant governor over the elected government of Delhi was passed in the Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha on Wednesday. The central government’s bill was vehemently opposed by AAP and Congress MPs in Parliament on March 24. The bill clarifies some of the powers and roles of the Deputy Governor of Delhi. Earlier, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said that the bill was against the principles of the Constitution. The bill was debated in Parliament on Wednesday. Replying to this, Minister of State for Home Affairs Kishan Reddy said that Delhi is a Union Territory with limited powers as per the Constitution. The High Court has also clarified this and the relevant bill is based on the decision of the High Court. Pursuant to Article 239A of the Constitution, the President appoints a Deputy Governor for Delhi. In case of any disagreement on any issue related to Delhi, the Deputy Governor informs the President. & Nbsp;

No powers of the Delhi Government will be curtailed, the Union Minister of State for Home Affairs told Parliament. He clarified that the Delhi government still has some limited powers. Subsequently, the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill 2021 was passed in Parliament. This time, AAP, Samajwadi Party and Congress MPs strongly opposed him.
