Delhi minister told secretaries - Do not obey LGs order: Sisodia said - Lieutenant Governors order to officers is against the constitution

The tussle between the government and the lieutenant governor in Delhi is not taking its name. All the ministers of the Delhi government have written letters to the secretaries of their departments, instructing them not to follow the orders received directly from the Lieutenant Governor (LG), informing the minister in charge. Strictly follow the Transaction of Business Rules (TBR).

Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said- LG is violating TBR and Rules 49 and 50 of the Supreme Court judgment by issuing orders directly to secretaries. Implementation of such illegal orders by LG would amount to a violation of Rule 57 of TBR. LG's giving direct orders to the departments is in violation of the Constitution and the directions of the Supreme Court.

Kejriwal came to meet LG last month with the book of the law

Last month, politics was heated in Delhi over the issue of preventing teachers from going to Finland for training. CM Arvind Kejriwal had reached Delhi's LG VK Saxena with a law book. After meeting LG, Kejriwal said that we want to work together.

After meeting LG, Kejriwal said that for the last few months, we are seeing that his interference in the works of the Delhi government is increasing. Due to this, the work of the people of Delhi is not being done. Had gone to meet the Lieutenant Governor today regarding this. I had taken books of many laws including the country's constitution, and the GNCT Act.

Kejriwal had said – what LG is doing is unconstitutional

Kejriwal had said that the law says that police, law, and land are the subjects of the Lieutenant Governor, and the rest is with the elected government. The order of the constitution bench of the Supreme Court says that the Lieutenant Governor has no right to decide on transfer matters.

This means that the Lieutenant Governor sealed Jasmine Shah's office, made Alderman, Presiding Officer, ordered recovery of 164 crores, and stopped teachers from going to Finland, all that is unconstitutional.

On the other hand, the office of Lieutenant Governor of Delhi VK Saxena has said that during the meeting with CM Kejriwal, all the things said by me including the Supreme Court are fabricated and I have not said anything like that.
