Aam Aadmi Party
New Delhi, June 11, 2023 – In a scathing attack against Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal lashed out at the recent ordinance on control of services issued by the Central Speaking at the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) massive rally in the capital today, Kejriwal accused the central government of encroaching upon the rights of states and vowed to fight against what he termed as “an assault on federalism.”
The rally, attended by thousands of AAP supporters from across Delhi, was organized to protest against the Centre’s ordinance, which seeks to give greater control to the Lieutenant Governor (LG) over key administrative services in the national capital.
The move has triggered a political storm, with many opposition parties accusing the BJP-led government of undermining the autonomy of elected state governments. Addressing the enthusiastic crowd, Kejriwal delivered a fiery speech in which he declared that similar ordinances would be brought for other states if the central government’s move was not opposed vigorously.
“This is not just an attack on Delhi, but on the principles of federalism and democracy,” he asserted, as the crowd erupted in cheers. The Delhi Chief Minister accused the Modi government of attempting to wrest control over the functioning of state governments by giving sweeping powers to the LG.
He argued that the ordinance was a deliberate attempt to curtail the powers of elected representatives and undermine the will of the people. Kejriwal also alleged that the BJP was resorting to such tactics to hinder the progress of non-BJP governments across the country.
“We will not let this happen. We will fight tooth and nail against this unjust ordinance. And mark my words, if we don’t stand up now, other states will face similar challenges. This is a dangerous precedent that must be stopped,” Kejriwal warned, as the crowd responded with chants of support.
Kejriwal called upon all non-BJP state governments and political parties to join forces and oppose the ordinance collectively. He urged them to unite to protect the rights and autonomy of states and ensure that elected representatives had the power to govern effectively.
The AAP leader concluded his speech by emphasizing that the fight against the ordinance was not just about Delhi but about the very essence of democracy. “We will not bow down to these authoritative tactics. We will continue to work for the welfare of the people and uphold the spirit of federalism,” he proclaimed.
The rally, which witnessed a massive turnout, highlighted the growing discontent among opposition parties towards the Modi government’s recent decisions. It also demonstrated the AAP’s determination to lead the charge against what it perceives as an attack on the right of the elected state governments.
As the political battle intensifies, it remains to be seen whether the central government will reconsider its stance on the controversial ordinance or if the opposition will successfully Mount a united front to challenge the BJP’s perceived encroachment on state powers.
The coming days are likely to witness increased political maneuvering as parties gear up for what could be a protracted legal and political battle over the control of services in Delhi and beyond.
