What is Delhi's ordinance issue?
On 11 May, the Supreme Court ruled that the power to transfer Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers in Delhi lay with the state government, and not the lieutenant-governor appointed by the Centre. On 19 May, the central government, through the president, issued an ordinance that effectively negated this ruling.
Several opposition parties have extended support to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal against the Centre's ordinance on control of services in the national capital including Samajwadi Party (SP), CPI(M), Shiv Sena (UBT), NCP, Bharat Rashtra Samithi, West Bengal's TMC, Bihar's JD(U) and Tamil Nadu's DMK.
