There has been no change in the position of the BJP and Aam Aadmi Party on the swearing in of nominated members of the Municipal Corporation of Delhi. There is a conflict between both parties on this matter. In such a situation consideration could be given to having the councilors sworn in under the protection of marshals and police. A request has been made to the Lieutenant Governor to declare a new date for the swearing in and vote for the post of Mayor on behalf of the Delhi Municipal Administration. The swearing in and vote for the mayoral post is likely to take place in the coming week.
According to the information received from the sources, the Lieutenant Governor has been advised that if both parties cannot agree on mutual consent, the cooperation of marshals and other security officials can be enlisted for this. The Lieutenant Governor can also request the Delhi Police to cooperate with the Municipal Government in conducting the election for the position of Mayor. The final decision on this must be taken by the Lieutenant Governor.
Both parties must respect the democratic process – Satya Sharma
Satya Sharma, who was appointed as the chairman to give the oath to the newly elected members of the Municipal Corporation, told Amar Ujala that she appeals to both sides to adopt a peaceful method and take the oath under the democratic process and for the post of mayor Assistance in holding elections. He says that the instructions of the Lieutenant Governor are awaited for this. The swearing-in of the elected-nominated members will be completed after the instructions of the Lieutenant Governor.
Kejriwal does not take the opposition – BJP
Senior BJP leader Praveen Shankar Kapoor told Amar Ujala that Arvind Kejriwal and the Aam Aadmi party do not believe in taking the opposition along. The Aam Aadmi Party is behaving similarly in the Delhi Legislative Assembly and now the same behavior is also observed in the Municipal Corporation. In such a situation, no cooperation is expected from Aam Aadmi Party in the election of the post of mayor, but once the next date for the post of mayor is announced, the BJP will cooperate in the oath-taking process and vote according to democratic procedures.
Kapoor, a BJP leader, claimed that the Aam Aadmi party walked away from the mayoral election as she realized her councilors were not there. The Aam Aadmi Party created this well-planned fuss to avoid defeat in the mayoral election. He said that the people of Delhi are being harmed by this, so the election for the post of mayor should be completed as soon as possible.
Both sides showed their strength
BJP and Aam Aadmi Party, both major parties, staged fierce demonstrations in the streets on Saturday and Monday before the new date for the mayor’s election was announced. The BJP surrounded the Chief Minister’s residence and accused Arvind Kejriwal of running away from the election. At the same time, the Aam Aadmi Party accused the BJP bureau of violating democratic procedures by showing force. Since the position of both parties does not change, the confrontation continues. In such a situation, holding elections for the position of mayor has become a challenge.
