GNCTD Bill: Lok Sabha passed bill giving more powers to Lt. Governor

New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday called the ‘National Capital Territory Governance (Amendment) Bill 2021’ passed in the Lok Sabha as “an insult” to the people of the capital Delhi. The ‘National Capital Territory Governance (Amendment) Bill 2021’ was passed in the Lok Sabha today amidst stiff opposition from the Congress and the Aam Aadmi Party. Opposition parties say the bill is ‘unconstitutional’.

The bill makes it mandatory for the Delhi government to take the views of the Lieutenant Governor on any executive step. Kejriwal said that the bill effectively seizes power from those who have been voted by the people and empowers those whom the public has defeated.

Kejriwal tweeted, “Today the passage of the GNCTD (Amendment) Bill in the Lok Sabha is an insult to the people of Delhi. This bill effectively snatches power from those whom the people of Delhi have quoted and defeated those whom they have defeated.” Gives authority. BJP cheated people. ‘

Explain that giving a big blow to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the Union Government on Monday passed the GNCTD (Amendment) Bill in the Lok Sabha, which said that without the Lieutenant Governor, any law made by the Legislative Assembly would not be affected. The Bill is to be amended in the National Capital Territory of Delhi Act, 1991.
