Delhi Service Bill

The Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill is scheduled for deliberation and passage in the Rajya Sabha. The bill, aimed at replacing an existing ordinance that grants the Union government control over the bureaucratic affairs of Delhi, has gained significant attention and is poised for a decisive moment.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), which has been a staunch advocate for the bill, has issued a notable three-line whip to its Rajya Sabha members. The whip, requesting the presence of AAP members from August 7 to 8, underlines the importance of their support for the party stand. This move comes following a successful passage of the bill in the Lok Sabha, despite opposition parties walking out during the debate.

The Congress party, a key ally in this endeavor, has also issued a similar three-line whip to its Rajya Sabha members, instructing them to be present for the forthcoming discussion. Congress leader and distinguished Supreme Court lawyer Abhishek Manu Singhvi is expected to lead the debate from the opposition side in the Rajya Sabha. Singhvi, who previously represented the Delhi government before a constitutional bench, brings his legal acumen to bear on the matter.

With AAP and Congress rallying behind the legislation, its potential impact on Delhi's administrative landscape is a topic of intense speculation.
