Synopsis:
Ch. Anil Kumar said that Arvind was the weakest Chief Minister Delhi had ever seen, as almost all the important powers of the Delhi Government, have been usurped by the Modi Government, reducing Chief Minister Arvind to a mere puppet in the hands of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that the Arvind Government, unable to provide able and efficient governance, seems to have given up all its powers to the Lt. Governor of Delhi, as the Modi Government is all set to pass the National Capital Territory of Delhi Second (Amendment) Bill 2021, in the current Budget session of Parliament.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that Arvind was the weakest Chief Minister Delhi had ever seen, as almost all the important powers of the Delhi Government, have been usurped by the Modi Government, reducing Chief Minister Arvind to a mere puppet in the hands of Union Home Minister Amit Shah.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that when Congress was in power at the Centre, it never tried to override the powers of the Delhi Government, as it had always striven to empower the pillars of democracy. He said that the best example of this was witnessed when Shri Rajiv Gandhi was the Prime Minister, as his Government gave more powers to Panchayats to decentralize powers, for effective governance and development.

He said that the BJP-led Union Government, instead of delegating powers, was weakening democratic institutions by concentrating all the powers in the hands of Modi and Amit Shah, to run an authoritarian Government, which does not tolerate well-meaning advice, suggestions and criticism, of any sort.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that Chief Minister Arvind himself is a votary of autocratic rule, as his only aim is to stay in power, by any means. He said that that was the reason CM Arvind is keeping mum, though he’s being defanged by the Modi-Shah duo, to delegate virtually all the powers of Delhi, to the Lt. Governor, Centre’s frontman in Delhi.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that the Aam Aadmi Party election manifesto, time and again, had promised full Statehood for Delhi, but sadly, the powers already vested with the Delhi Government, are also being taken away by the Centre, as Chief Minister Arvind does not have the courage to speak up against the Modi-Shah combine.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that it was surprising that instead of protesting against the Central Government trespassing on the powers of Delhi, the Arvind Government is meekly accepting such intrusions, and keeping itself busy meddling in the political affairs of other States, where the Aam Aadmi Party has no presence.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that Delhi Congress has been exposing the failures, corruption and misdeeds of the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party Governments through the “Pol Khol” campaign, to highlight the issues affecting the people, instead of indulging in empty rhetoric to fool the people.
