Arvind Kejriwal to meet CM KCR on Saturday

On Saturday, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal will meet his Telangana counterpart K. Chandrasekhar Rao here to seek support against the Ordinance passed by the Centre designating Delhi Lt Governor as the administrator who will have the final say on the postings and transfer of all bureaucrats serving the Delhi government.

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader said on Friday that he will seek Telangana Chief Minister KCR’s support in opposing the “unconstitutional and undemocratic Ordinance passed by the BJP government against the orders of the Supreme Court”.

The Supreme Court recently issued an order granting the Delhi government the authority to make laws and post or transfer bureaucrats. A five-judge Constitution bench of the apex court ruled unanimously on May 11 that the Delhi government had legislative and executive powers over administrative services in the national capital.

Kejriwal and other AAP leaders will urge Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) president and Telangana CM KCR to support the party against the ordinance. He will also request that the BRS oppose the Bill to be brought by the Modi government in Parliament to replace the ordinance.

The meeting with KCR is the latest in a series of meetings between AAP leaders and leaders of various opposition parties across the country. Kejriwal has also requested time with Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge and party leader Rahul Gandhi to seek Congress support in Parliament.

Kejriwal along with Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann had called on Nationalist Congress Party leader Sharad Pawar in Mumbai on May 25 to gain his support. Separately, AAP leaders met with Shiv Sena UBT leader Uddhav Thackeray.

Kejriwal had previously visited Kolkata to meet with West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. She assured him that the Trinamool Congress would oppose the bill if it was introduced in Parliament by the Narendra Modi government.
