President’s rule in Delhi recommended

NEW DELHI: Delhi LG Najeeb Jung has sent a report to the Union home ministry recommending imposition of President’s rule in the state while keeping the assembly under suspended animation.
This is contrary to outgoing chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s call for immediate dissolution of the Delhi assembly and holding of fresh polls in the state.
Keeping the assembly under suspended animation would leave the window open for exploring alternatives for government formation in the future. Besides, it fulfils the guideline laid down in the S R Bommai judgment of the Supreme Court that the assembly should be placed under suspended animation until Parliament ratifies the Presidential proclamation imposing President’s rule.
A direct fallout of Jung’s recommendation for placing Delhi assembly under suspended animation is that the Delhi polls may be delinked from the Lok Sabha poll. This is expected to deny AAP the advantage of reaping rich electoral dividends in simultaneous polls.
President’s rule can be imposed in a state for six months at a stretch. In case the Union Cabinet clears President’ rule and the Proclamation is issued in the next couple of days, there is a possibility of the government getting the Proclamation ratified in the ongoing session itself.
