On the mayoral election matter in Delhi, Kejriwal said, “Let the elected government in Delhi work for the 2 crore people. Work to strengthen the constitution.”
Kejriwal said that the senior-most corporator is made the pro tem speaker, while in this case also the LG (Lt. Governor) has done the work of making the BJP corporator the pro tem speaker.
Let us tell you that on Friday, January 6, the process of election of Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Standing Committee members of MCD was going on in Delhi. At the same time, a scuffle started between the leaders of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party and the BJP. The House was adjourned after an uproar that lasted for about 4 hours.
Kejriwal questions the appointment of Protem Speaker of BJP
The Lieutenant Governor had appointed BJP corporator Satya Sharma as pro tem speaker for the mayoral election. Earlier, AAP had proposed the name of Mukesh Goyal. The Aam Aadmi Party objected to Satya’s name. On the other hand, as soon as Protem Speaker Satya started administering oath to the nominated members of the Lieutenant Governor, the members of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party started shouting slogans in protest.
‘LG chose the Protem speaker on its own’
Now, by writing a letter, Kejriwal has raised questions on the Lieutenant Governor. Kejriwal said that an elected government does the work of sending this (pro tem speaker) to the House, but he was chosen by the Lieutenant Governor himself.
Kejriwal said, “The chairman of the Haj Committee is decided by the elected government, but here also the Lieutenant Governor has done the work of bypassing the government.
