B&E This Month
President's Rule in Delhi

Issue Date - 01/03/2014

There appears no end for surprises and shockers for the residents of Delhi. On February 14, 2014, the Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party decided to resign from power. A day later, the Union Cabinet accepted Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung’s recommendation for establishing President’s Rule in Delhi. Of course, AAP isn’t happy about the decision and contend that the Assembly should have been dissolved – with re-elections being announced – and not kept in a suspended state. Sources claim that the L-G has the right to explore the possibility of a government formation by recommending a re-election. Kejriwal argues that the Centre decided to accept L-G recommendation because the Congress wanted to avoid any possibility of fresh elections. Contesting the February 16 order, AAP moved the Supreme Court on February 20, 2014. Will there be another ‘AAP vs. The Rest’ bout before the Lok Sabha elections in April-May this year? Who knows? Delhi has had its fair share of surprises and shockers!
