Rajasthan CM Gehlot calls GNCTD Bill ‘murder of democracy’, move to target AAP

Terming the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021 as “murder of democracy”, he said abolishing the powers of an elected government is against the spirit of democracy.

Hitting out at the Centre, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday said the bill giving primacy to Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor over the elected government, was passed by the parliament to curtail the rights of the AAP-led dispensation.

Terming the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Bill, 2021 as “murder of democracy”, he said abolishing the powers of an elected government is against the spirit of democracy.

“Earlier the SC had clearly ruled that the elected government is the real head of Delhi.

“Modi govt wants to run the country in a fascist manner. Electoral malpractices, horse trading of elected MLAs, and when failing in both, it resorts to passing such a dictatorial bill on the strength of its majority in Parliament. This is how the Modi govt rules,” Gehlot said in a series of tweets.

He said the BJP could abolish the powers of any government by bringing such laws if it loses elections in a state.
