New Delhi, April 8: After Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal cancelled the land allotted to Aam Aadmi Party’s office, the opposition parties including Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress have demanded suspension of the party from the assembly.
“The AAP took this office illegally. If you do anything unconstitutionally and illegally then law will take its action. This is PWD’s observation that this flat is for the MLAs to live in and not to use it as office by any political party. Lt. governor approval was also not taken for this allotment,” said BJP leader Satish Upadhyay.
The BJP leader further said that it is common practice for AAP Government to breach the rules and cry foul in front of public. He said AAP’s strategy is to mislead and befool the people by blaming the Centre, BJP, LG, DDA and police.
While the Congress leader JP Aggarwal said that Kejriwal led AAP Government has always been indulged in “illegal” activities ever since it has come to power in the national capital.
The Congress leader slammed AAP government in Delhi for misusing their administrative position and said they have no right to stay in power and the government should be suspended after the revelations of Shunglu commitee.
“AAP has always created a circumstance of tussle. They should know their limit. In Shunglu committee report there is not just one point but there are many issues where it can be seen that they have misused their administrative position. This government has no right to stay in power and it should be suspended. They had talked about moral grounds and transparency but have failed in their work,” said Aggarwal.
On Friday, Delhi LG Baijal had cancelled the allotment of bungalow for AAP office in the national capital. The move was the result of outcomes of Shunglu Committee that questioned irregularities in the allotment of land by Arvind Kejriwal-led government.
The Shunglu Committee was set up by former Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung after Delhi High Court gave powers to LG in Delhi administrative affairs in August last year. Headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) V.K. Shunglu, the report, raised questions on the allotment of 206, Rouse Avenue – a minister’s bungalow used as party office – to AAP.
