The Aam Aadmi Party has reached the Supreme Court on the mayoral election of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. The party has claimed that despite being a minority in the Municipal Corporation, the BJP wants to maintain its authority on the post of mayor in an unconstitutional manner. The party claims that the BJP wants to win the election for the mayoral post by reining in the rules and allowing the councilor to vote. At the same time, the BJP has claimed that even after winning the majority, the Aam Aadmi Party is walking away from the mayoral election. Since now the issue of election as mayor has reached the Supreme Court, Delhi may take some time to get a mayor.

Aam Aadmi Party spokesman Saurabh Bhardwaj said on Thursday that his party has appealed to the Supreme Court for the election as mayor. He said that the BJP’s rule over the municipal corporation itself ended in March 2022, but in the name of the first association of the corporations, it retained power and no longer conducts the election for the post of mayor. Saurabh Bhardwaj said he has filed two demands in the Supreme Court. The first requirement is that the government must be formed within a certain time in the Municipal Society. The second requirement is that the older man should not be allowed to vote in elections for the office of mayor. The Aam Aadmi party claims that the BJP wants the councilor to vote in an unconstitutional manner.

At the same time, the BJP has accused the Aam Aadmi party of running away from the mayoral election. Virendra Sachdeva, the working president of Delhi BJP, said that even after having a majority in the Municipal Corporation, the Aam Aadmi party will not allow the mayoral elections to be held. The entire capital has seen councilors from the Aam Aadmi party causing commotion and misbehaving with BJP leaders and women during the election for mayor on January 6. The party has said that the video of this entire incident is available and all evidence will be brought to court.

Sachdeva said that the Aam Aadmi party has no confidence in its councilors. There is a split in the party from the Aam Aadmi party and they are allowed to vote for the mayoral candidate of another party. Knowing this fact, Aam Aadmi Party does not allow the election for the post of mayor. BJP leader Praveen Shankar Kapoor has said that after the merger of all three municipal corporations in Delhi, the position of mayor has become almost equal to that of chief minister. He has claimed that Arvind Kejriwal does not want another person equal to him in his own party in Delhi. This is why the election of mayor is hindered in several ways.

date not yet known

Delhi could not even get a mayor after the commotion at the Corporation House on January 6. So far no initiative has been taken by the municipal council or the chairman to set a new date for the election of the office of mayor. Even after all elected-nominees were sworn in at the last meeting, the election for the position of mayor could not be held. Immediately after the swearing-in, the President announces the dissolution of the House. In such a situation, the Aam Aadmi Party fears that it will try to break its councilors by giving more time for the BJP to become mayor after the elections. This is why he moved the court.

There was also a problem in this case that the new mayor was only given about two months to work. At the same time, the way was paved to become six mayors in one term, which is not constitutionally justified. Now, after some time in court, a way can be found to fill the post of mayor at the end of March or early April and also avoid the confusion of six mayors in one term.
