Hyderabad, 6th August 2023: Union Minister for Home and Cooperation Amit Shah, while targeting the opposition in the debate in the Lok Sabha, said, 'No matter how much the opposition parties form an alliance, no matter how hard they try, in 2024, Modi ji will be the Prime Minister with a huge majority. It is certain to become.
On the initiative of Union Home and Cooperation Minister Amit Shah, the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2023 was passed in the Lok Sabha on Thursday. Amit Shah once again demonstrated that where there is 'Shah', there is a way, showcasing his unbeatable logic.
The Legislative Assembly was started in Delhi in 1993. Since then, there has been a BJP government in Delhi and Congress at the Center and sometimes a Congress government in Delhi and a BJP government at the Centre. Both parties ruled without any confrontation on this subject.
But when Kejriwal's government was formed in the year 2015, the problem started. The motive of AAP is not to serve the public, but to hide the corruption of the Delhi government by opposing this bill.
Shah is firmly of the belief that the leaders in the house who accused him of acting against the Supreme Court's decision may not have read the court's complete judgment. The court explicitly stated that under Article 239A, the Parliament holds full authority to enact laws pertaining to Delhi on any matter.
In his distinctive manner, Amit Shah narrated the history of Delhi's formation, highlighting that in 1911, the British created Mehrauli and Delhi tehsils independently from Punjab. Subsequently, the Siddaramaiah Committee called for Delhi to be granted full statehood, which faced opposition from Pandit Nehru, Sardar Patel, Rajendra Prasad, and Ambedkar.
The opposition parties began opposing the Delhi Government (Amendment) Bill, 2023, as it was introduced in the Lok Sabha by senior BJP leader Amit Shah. While the passage of this bill is unlikely to affect any party except the AAP, the opposition's protest was solely aimed at safeguarding the Alliance. Given the already weak foundation of the Grand Alliance, it is certain that Kejriwal will exit the alliance promptly once the Bill is passed.
Shah's emphatic support for the Delhi Services Bill throughout the debate leaves no doubt that the dispute revolves not only around the transfer and posting rights of officers but also centers on the handling of the bungalow and taking charge of vigilance. It seems to be an attempt to conceal expenses and evade responsibility in the liquor scam.
