May 21, 2015 04:38 PM
The Delhi government on Thursday denied published reports that the morale of its officers had been hit by a public row between the chief minister and the Lt. Governor. "Every government official is working with the chief minister and different ministers with full energy," Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said in a tweet. "The morale has gone down for those who misuse their positions, not for the hardworking officers," he added. According to Sisodia, retired IAS officers who in earlier governments thrived by transferring and posting bureaucrats in select posts were "now talking about boosting IAS officers' morale".

Is Aam Admi Party really working for the people of Delhi or indulged in their own internal fighting.

Towards the end of May, at a time when the clash between Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government snowballed into a major controversy, Manish Sisodia - the deputy chief minister of Delhi, tried to give the whole issue a certain dimension by saying that his government was actually fighting for the people. “We are not fighting for personal gains, but for the people's rights, their benefit, and against corruption,” Sisodia said at the much publicised 'Janta
Is Delhi government concerned about the rising air pollution in the state

To begin with, let’s focus on the two main green bodies operating from Delhi. Central Pollution Control Board It is the seat of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) since 1974 which is “entrusted” with the powers and functions under the Air (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act, 1981. It not just advises the Central Government on how to prevent and control water and air pollution and improve the quality of air, but also lays down standards for the quality
War between Arvind Kejriwal and Najeeb Jung

The ongoing public spat between Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung and Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over the control of Delhi administration has exposed the grey areas in governance that require immediate redressal to ensure against any such crisis in the city state of Delhi. The immediate provocation was the appointment of Shakuntala Gamlin as acting Chief Secretary of Delhi by the Lieutenant Governor in spite of Kejriwal’s strong opposition on 15th May this year. This made the Chief Minister cry foul
Municipal Corporation of Delhi - benefits and challenges of having same party at the centre

New Delhi is one of the largest capitals in the world with a dense population. The city is governed by three Municipal bodies. The largest body being the erstwhile Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD), New Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) and the Delhi Cantonment Board. MCD first came into existence through an Act of Parliament on 7 April 1958. In 1992, the 73rd and 74th Amendments brought in changes in the functioning of the Municipal Corporation giving greater focus to developing
Can Ajay Maken bring back the Congress on track in Delhi

Visit the busy public places, University campus as well as the 138 metro stations of Delhi and more often than not one now bumps into volunteers wearing the Congress cap and holding the Congress flag circulating pamphlets. These pamphlets are not about the achievements of the party (does it have any to trumpet about right now?). They aren’t either meant to target the Opposition. But they carry the message of how to protect one from the spread of swine flu!
Arvind Kejriwal's dual role in Aam Aadmi Party

In its first term in office, Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government lasted just 49 days before making a hasty exit. In its second term, in less than a month, the party is once again in crisis and this time it is Arvind Kejriwal’s ‘dual’ role between party and government that is the trigger that could well blow into a major inner party conflict. Is the controversy justified? One must seek answers from past experiences of political parties and the impact of
Will Delhi and the Centre continue to remain at loggerheads

BJP rode into power on the back of a massive mandate. But this did not come without a bitter fight with a rising AAP that viewed itself as a serious alternative to a jaded UPA II and BJP, which is perceived as communal. Vicious political upstaging Accusations flew thick and fast between the BJP and AAP and once the General Elections saw BJP eliminating all opposition, AAP withdrew into obscurity. No one gave the party a serious chance to make
Arvind Kejriwal Janata Darbars

Spectacle and Arvind Kejriwal seem inseparable. The Aam Aadmi Party supremo’s second innings as Delhi chief minister, after a huge mandate, is as spectacular as his first one – devoid of any compunction of playing to the gallery. Consider him resuming his Janata Darbars even before he is settled in Delhi! He still lives at his wife’s official accommodation at Kaushambi in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and it is here that he is holding his Janata Darbars. Doesn’t this sound weird
Can Modi and Kejriwal governments function together

How often did we find on national television channels the Bharatiya Janata Party leaders shooting down the Aam Aadmi Party’s promises as “utter lies” given the limitations of the Delhi government in implementing such promises? The BJP attacks on the AAP were based on the fact that Delhi was still not a full-fledged state and that any city government in Delhi therefore, had to depend on the Centre. The BJP’s reason therefore was that only a BJP government could yield
How Delhi can change under new governance

At least three news items, within a couple of days of the Aam Aadmi Party taking control of Delhi, catch attention: Government water tankers reaching those parched unauthorised localities of the national capital that they had never visited before Early morning cleaning of drains in some other unauthorised colonies, which was a rarity The Delhi cabinet deciding, in its very first sitting on 16 February, to ban demolition in residential areas So hasn’t the new government in Delhi made a
