LG declares invalid panel of lawyers appointed by AAP govt 21.5.2018 General News
Citing alleged procedural lapses, Lt Governor Anil Baijal has declared as "invalid" the panel of fourteen lawyers appointed by the Delhi government for appearance in cases before Delhi High Court, in yet another flashpoint between him and the AAP dispensation. Fuming at the LG's decision, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today attacked Baijal, saying he should do something constructive for once, instead of rejecting every proposal of the AAP government. The panel scrapped by the LG included prominent lawyers like Indira Jaising, Rebecca Mammen John, Colin Gonsalves, among others. In his written communication to Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash last week, L-G's Principal Secretary Vijay Kumar said the orders regarding the panel of lawyers had allegedly been issued without obtaining the approval of the Lt Governor. "These (orders) have also not been issued in the manner specified under Section 44 (2) GNCTD Act and have not been authenticated in the manner provided under Section 44 (3) of the

AAP hits out at Centre for rise in fuel prices 21.5.2018 General News
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) today hit out at the BJP-led central government for the price hike in petrol and diesel, saying it "adversely" affected the livelihood of the common man. The people of the country felt "cheated" by the Narendra Modi government in the wake of the increased prices of petrol and diesel, AAP's chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said. The prices of petrol today stood at Rs 84.07 per litre in Mumbai, Rs 79.13 per litre in Chennai, Rs 78.91 per litre in Kolkata and Rs 76.24 per litre in Delhi. These were the highest petrol prices under the current BJP dispensation, while the price of diesel touched a high of Rs 65.65 per litre, Bhardwaj said. "The Modi government is responsible for the inflation all around. From fruits and vegetables to petrol and diesel -- everything is severely affected by the daily price hikes," he added. Despite a fall in the price of crude oil in the international market, the fuel prices were going up in the country, because the BJP government

AAP govt alleges misinformation campaign being run to 'derail' CCTV camera project 21.5.2018 General News
The AAP government today alleged that "vested interests" were running a misinformation campaign against its ambitious project to install 1.5 lakh CCTV cameras in Delhi, and hinted that "big private players" were behind it. The government indicated that the private players were fuelling the campaign after they lost during the bidding process. Welcoming a "healthy" discussion on any of its policies, the government in a statement said it was "shocking" that the discourse over the project has been reduced to a "non-serious and improper" debate. "In case of CCTV cameras in residential areas project, it has been noticed that vested interests are making desperate attempts to spread misinformation through a motivated campaign, giving rise to reasonable suspicion that big private players, who have lost the tender bid to a public sector enterprise could be behind the entire mischief," it said. The Kejriwal government is at loggerheads with Lt Governor Anil Baijal on the issue of CCTV camera ...

EC hearing: AAP MLAs persist with demand to cross examine Delhi govt officials 21.5.2018 General News
The 20 AAP MLAs whose plea against disqualification is being heard afresh by the EC, today demanded that Delhi government and assembly officials be cross examined to prove that their appointment as parliamentary secretaries does not come under the ambit of office-of-profit. The Delhi AAP lawmakers persisted with their plea made on May 16 to cross examine officials who had submitted documents before the EC about their office-of-profit case. The Election Commission (EC) had on May 16 resumed hearing in the case after the Delhi High Court set aside their disqualification for allegedly holding office-of-profit. The poll panel's decision to resume hearing came after the high court had termed the EC recommendation as "vitiated" and "bad in law", and directed the commission to hear the issue afresh. In an application filed before the commission during the hearing, the MLAs had said they would like to cross examine the secretary of the Delhi legislative assembly, and officials of the law and .

How will pvt schools implement pay panel without hiking fees: HC asks 21.5.2018 General News
How would private unaided schools in the national capital implement the 7th Pay Commission recommendations without hiking their fees, the Delhi High Court asked the AAP government today. The query was posed to the Delhi government by a bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar while asking it to file a status report on the implementation of the pay panel recommendations in private unaided schools. The court said the government will have to monitor the implementation of the recommendations and should not wait for teachers' complaints to take any action. The Delhi government told the bench that it had issued an order in August last year asking all private unaided schools to implement the recommendations of the 7th Pay Commission and added that it has not received any complaint from teachers saying this was not being done. "Why should you wait for complaints? You have to monitor the implementation of your order. Here you cannot take the excuse that the central .

Eateries in Delhi protest govt's diktat to allow only live music 21.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
The Aam Aadmi Party government's recent order banning playing of recorded music in pubs and restaurants in Delhi has many restaurateurs miffed. While it was complaints from the residents of some of Delhi's poshest areas — about loud music played late into the night by watering holes in their neighbourhood — that prompted the Delhi government to issue guidelines asking places serving food and liquor to have only live singing or playing of musical instruments. Officials said the government will reiterate the guidelines as per the existing rules and violation can attract strict action, including cancellation of licence of repeat offenders. "In most cases of violation, we usually levy fine," the official added. Late night pubs are mostly concentrated in Greater Kailash-I and II, Hauz Khas Village, Safdarjung Development Area and Khel Gaon in South Delhi. As per Rule 53 (4) of the Delhi Excise Rules, 2010, the L-17 licensee (restaurants which serve food and alcohol) is only allowed live singing/playing of ...

Citizens miffed with Delhi government, L-G Anil Baijal over delay in CCTV installation 20.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
As the tussle between Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi Government and Lieutenant Governor (L-G) Anil Baijal continues over the installation of CCTV cameras in the national capital, the citizens are disappointed and want the deadlock to end at the earliest. The installation of CCTV cameras in Delhi was one of the key electoral planks of the AAP in 2015 to improve citizens' safety. The issue has surfaced several times over the last three years as the installation of cameras remains an unfulfilled poll promise. It again grabbed headlines recently as the AAP started protesting against the L-G's alleged intervention in the matter. "As a woman, I don't feel safe in Delhi. More CCTV cameras would be really helpful to keep a check on crimes and identify criminals," said Soumya Johri, a resident of Dwarka. Johri said the ongoing tussle was serving no purpose and should end at the earliest. "The interests of citizens should be the priority, not the interests of politicians." As the crime rate in Delhi shows no ...

A six-member committee, constituted by Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal earlier this month, is likely to regulate the installation of CCTV cameras in private and government buildings in the national capital, a source has said.

Delhi: Move to scrap vehicles stuck 20.5.2018 DNA: Opinion
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government's 'Delhi Scrapping of Vehicles Rules, 2018' policy proposal to phase out all private vehicles older than 15 years has hit a roadblock, as the law department is "re-examining" the draft. The file, which was sent to the law department for approval this February, is lying with the law secretary, sources said. It is important to approve the policy, aimed to be notified by the year-end, soon as it would affect 37 lakh vehicles in the city. Delhi has over one crore vehicles registered. Once vetted by the law department, the policy will be put in the public domain for objections/suggestions on the same. The proposal prepared by the transport department was sent back to it last month for making the draft 'concise'. "The draft was revised and sent back to the law department soon after. However, we are still awaiting their word on it," sources said. The proposed policy aims to make the Capital the first in the country to have an "end of vehicle life" policy. If notified, all ...
