New Delhi: The Congress party on Friday criticised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for not doing anything since coming to power and always passing the buck of blame and responsibility to the Centre.
“The AAP government in Delhi does not do anything as Mr. Kejriwal just passes the buck to the Centre,” Congress spokesperson Shobha Oza told ANI.
Earlier, the AAP government had appealed to the Supreme Court to restrain the Delhi High Court from ruling upon a number of petitions related to the scope of powers between the Centre and the Delhi Government.
The AAP government had alleged that it is unable to function as most of its decisions are either annulled or modified by the Centre.
Oza said, “Earlier, also there have been different governments at the Centre and in Delhi as well, but they worked. But since this AAP government has come into power, Mr. Kejriwal just does not want to do anything but pass the buck to the Centre.”
The Delhi government had appealed to the High Court to decide the preliminary issue of whether it had the jurisdiction over disputes between the Centre and the state or is it “exclusively” triable by the apex court.
The Supreme Court has ordered the Delhi government to approach it only after the Delhi High Court has decided all issues, including the preliminary issues.
The AAP government and the Centre have been locked horns over governance in Delhi for most of the party’s tenure, leading to the ruling party seeking the apex court’s intervention.
