Chandigarh, May 20

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) strongly condemned the centre's move for the ordinance of National Capital Civil Authority and termed it as contempt of court and a cowardly act of anti-democratic government.

Addressing a press conference here on Saturday AAP Punjab chief spokesperson Malvinder Singh Kang said that the SC had directed that the elected government be given powers to take decisions independently, as per its will, as per the principles of democracy. But as always BJP is turning out to be a sore loser and this ordinance is a result of their vendetta against Delhi's AAP government and spirit of democracy. Their sole motive is to snatch powers from the Kejriwal Government.

Kang added that the Modi Government has made it clear that it does not care for the people's mandate, or for the directive of the apex court, and it will bypass the elected government of Delhi. It is clear that the Modi Government fears CM Arvind Kejriwal. And to stop him they are even taking unconstitutional measures such as violating the spirit of democracy and the federal system of our country. Their dictatorial attitude is a direct insult of people's mandate who gave 90% plus seats to the AAP government in Delhi.

He said that according to this ordinance, National Capital Civil Authority will have three members; Chief Minister, Chief Secretary and Principal Home Secretary of Delhi. Both Chief Secretary and Principal Home Secretary are appointed by the central government and LG will take decisions based on the recommendations of this authority and he'll have the ultimate power. In short, BJP wants to snatch all powers from an elected Chief Minister and give these powers to their nominated people. Nothing could be worse than this for the capital of the world's largest democracy.

Commenting on the demonetization of Rs 2000 note, Kang said that BJP is a confused government. In 2016 they said that the introduction of Rs 2000 note and demonetization of Rs 500 and 1000 notes will bring black money back but now they're saying that demonetization of 2000 note will eradicate black money. This whole thing shows that the BJP government is a complete failure. Kang said that BJP will lose 2024 general elections badly as they'll never succeed in suppressing the voice of the people and the people are with Arvind Kejriwal and the AAP.
