hear the news
In the event of riots, assault and sabotage in the meeting of the MCD house, the ball is in the Lieutenant Governor’s court. LG can take action up to suspension against the councilors who cause a commotion. In such a situation you may be at a loss, because in the event of a fuss, the council members can be suspended for one to three sessions of the House on the basis of the report of the chairman and the MCD. A provision for such action is included in the DMC Act. Meanwhile, BJP is going to protest at Raj Ghat on this issue today.
AAP may have to suffer a defeat in the mayor and deputy mayor elections if the lieutenant governor orders the council members to be suspended from the House. In fact, the council members of AAP were the instigators of the commotion in the parliamentary meeting. But the BJP councilors also did not lag behind in creating a commotion and they also chanted slogans against AAP.
On the other hand, MCD officials believe that due to unrest in the House of Representatives, the Lieutenant Governor will take strict action if the oath of councilors and the election of mayor and deputy mayor are not held. He will probably study the report of the chairman and the MCD and seek legal advice on the matter, as there is no mayor in the MCD and the chairman has no right to take action against the corporators. That is why the Lieutenant Governor now has to make a decision about the proper conduct of the MCD meeting. In this episode, a provision is also made to invite the Lieutenant Governor to the parliamentary meeting. In such a situation, the presiding officer can evict the councilors who are causing a commotion.
Decision on action only after the report
On the other hand, sources said that in case of ruckus in the House assembly, a strict report will be presented to the lieutenant governor by the presiding officer Satta Sharma. She has started drafting the report and will submit it to the Lieutenant Governor next week. However, he immediately informed the Lieutenant Governor about the whole situation and only after speaking with him did he announce the adjournment of the Assembly to the next date. On the other hand, in the event of unrest in the House of Representatives, MCD officials will start preparing the report from Monday and will probably submit the report to the Lieutenant Governor at the end of next week. The corporator has spoken to the officials concerned about the whole matter and has verbally handed over the report to the lieutenant governor.
meeting probably won’t happen any time soon
The meeting of the MCD House is unlikely to take place any time soon, as several arrangements need to be made to ensure the proper conduct of the meeting. Apart from this, due to the vandalism in the house, it needs to be repaired. At the same time, a request will be made from the side of the MCD to fix the date of the meeting. According to the MCD, the file will be moved to convene the meeting itself next week. For example, it is assumed that the meeting of the Chamber will be held at the end of this month. The councilors may therefore have to wait about 20 days to take the oath.
Took oath but could not sign
Four MCD council members, nominated by the Lieutenant Governor on the recommendation of the national government, took the oath, but were unable to sign the register due to the crowds. In this way, the issue of becoming councilors of nominated councilors Vinod Kumar, Laxman Arya, Mukesh Mann and Sunit Chauhan, who took oath during the tumult, could not be cleared up. However, the presiding officer Satya Sharma has all the rights and powers of the corporator. The oath was given to him by the District Magistrate of New Delhi District and he also signed the register. After this, he started the proceedings of the house.
BJP’s strike today
The BJP has become strict on ruckus caused by the founders of the Aam Aadmi party in the company. The BJP has made preparations to fight the battle from the road to the Lieutenant Governor’s Secretariat. BJP leaders have decided to give money in front of Raj Ghat on Saturday as she will file a complaint with the lieutenant governor about it.
