LG and government tussle over convening assembly session in Delhi, AAP alleges disrespect

Delhi Assembly Special Session: On Monday, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) called a one-day session of the Delhi Assembly, Lieutenant Governor V.K. The objection of Saxena (Vinai Kumar Saxena) was sent to the Committee of Privileges. The AAP also authorized the committee to examine whether Saxena could be summoned in the matter.

The House targeted Saxena over the ‘note’ sent to Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on the issue of calling a ‘one-day session’. AAP has 62 members in Delhi’s 70-member assembly. Ruling party AAP MLAs alleged that Saxena’s objection to the convening of the Assembly session on Monday was an “insult” to the House and was not in accordance with his constitutional position.

Vice President Rakhi Birla made this allegation
Rakhi Birla, Deputy Speaker of the Delhi Legislative Assembly, who is presiding over the meeting of the House, alleged that efforts are being made to reduce the dignity and power of the House. He also ordered to send the matter to the Privileges Committee of the Legislative Assembly. Birla said that the committee should also consider whether the Lieutenant Governor can be summoned in this matter. Lieutenant Governor Saxena had on Sunday expressed concern over ‘procedural lapses’ in convening the one-day session of the state assembly.

The governor asked this question
He questioned under which provision of the GNCTD Act, 1991, the second half of the fourth session (Budget Session) of the Seventh Legislative Assembly, instead of moving a motion to prorogue the session and convene a ‘one-day session’ as per the decision of the Delhi Cabinet. The session was called. He advised the government, “The proposed second part of the fourth session is being convened on April 17 without following due process, which should not be called.”

Birla, who was presiding over the meeting of the House, referred the matter to the Committee of Privileges. He said, “The committee should inquire and report whether there has been a breach of privilege and contempt and whether the Honorable Lieutenant Governor can be summoned before the committee?”
