Showdown on Twitter: Clash of Opinions on Delhi Bill Passed in Parliament | India News
The law, which may face a new legal challenge from the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, establishes the status of the LG as in any other UT, equating the ‘government’ in Delhi with the LG.
The approval of the bill in both houses of parliament provoked mixed reactions on the microblogging platform Twitter. While some said the bill takes power away from the elected government, others emphasized that Delhi is a city and seat of the central government and therefore cannot afford two parallel power structures.
How easily Modi Govt brought an unconstitutional #GNCTDBill and passed it is terrifying for our nation!
