Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday sought the support of the Indian National Congress Party to prevent the passage of the Emergency Act by the Central Government in the Rajya Sabha.
On May 11, the Supreme Court ruled that the Delhi government, which was elected by the people, has administrative powers. However, again the central government has issued an emergency law to provide administrative powers related to services including transfer of IAS officers to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi.
Although this emergency bill was passed by the BJP in the Lok Sabha, the Aam Aadmi Party is trying to prevent it from being passed in the Rajya Sabha.
For this, the party’s national coordinator and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has launched an effort to unite all the opposition parties against the new law.
Arvind Kejriwal, who has already met opposition leaders including Nitish Kumar, Mamata Banerjee, Uddhav Thackeray, Sarath Pawar and sought their support, has now sought the support of the Congress party in this matter.
In this regard, Kejriwal said in his Twitter post:
Congress President Mallikarjuna has asked for time to meet Kharke and Rahul Gandhi to seek Congress support in Parliament to prevent the passage of the anti-democratic and unconstitutional Emergency Act enacted by the BJP government and to discuss the current political situation and public attack on the federal system.
In another Twitter post, ‘On May 27 (Saturday) Telangana Chief Minister K. He said that he will meet Chandrasekhar Rao in Hyderabad and seek his support against the Supreme Court judgment and the emergency law brought by the central BJP government against the Constitution.

The administrators had urged the national leadership not to support the Aam Aadmi Party in this matter. The Aam Aadmi Party had also commented that ‘Congress is a national party and can take a decision considering the profit and loss on the issue of emergency legislation’.
