Delhi govt vs Centre ordinance row: Kejriwal to meet Tamil Nadu CM Stalin today
Kejriwal, who had initiated a nationwide tour on May 23 to gather support from Opposition parties against the Ordinance, has another meeting scheduled with Jharkhand Chief Minister Hemant Soren on June 2nd.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is scheduled to meet with Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, aiming to garner support in opposition to the Central government's Ordinance regarding control over administrative services in the national capital, as reported by ANI.
"On June 2, I will meet the Chief Minister of Jharkhand Hemant Soren ji in Ranchi. Will seek their support against the ordinance passed by the Modi government against the people of Delhi," he said in a subsequent tweet.
The AAP national convenor has so far met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, former Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) supremo Sharad Pawar, Bihar CM Nitish Kumar and his deputy Tejashwi Yadav.
On May 19th, the Union government introduced an ordinance to establish regulations for the Government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD), focusing on areas such as transfer postings, vigilance, and other related matters.
This ordinance aims to amend the existing Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi Act, 1991, and it is designed to bypass the Supreme Court's ruling in the Centre vs Delhi case.
