The Union government on Saturday moved to Supreme Court seeking review of the Constitution Bench’s May 11 judgement wherein the top court held that Delhi government has “legislative and executive power over services” in the national capital.
The move came hours after the Union government brought an ordinance to create a National Capital Civil Service Authority that will have the power to recommend the transfer and posting of all Group A officers and officers of DANICS serving in Delhi.
The ordinance has been brought to amend the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi Act, 1991 and it circumvents the SC judgement in the Centre vs Delhi case.
A day after the Centre brought an ordinance to give the control of ‘services’ back to Delhi Lieutenant Governor, Aam Aadmi Party Minister Atishi on Saturday said that the party will oppose the “illegal and unconstitutional” ordinance in the Parliament and the court.
“We will oppose this illegal unconstitutional ordinance on the road, in the Parliament and in the court as well. Will decide when and how to approach the court after consulting our legal and constitutional experts,” said Atishi while speaking to ANI.
