Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national spokesperson Raghav Chadha on Friday criticised the BJP-led Central government's decision of not allowing the hotels and weekly markets to reopen in Delhi, saying that the Centre should immediately roll back this decision.
Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on Friday overruled the AAP government’s decision to open hotels and allow for weekly markets on a trial basis under Unlock 3.
Chadha said that it appears that the central government under the BJP derives sadistic pleasure by inflicting pain and misery of the people of Delhi and by undermining the democratically elected government of Delhi.
“It appears that the central government under the BJP derives sadistic pleasure by inflicting pain and misery of the people of Delhi and by undermining the democratically elected government of Delhi.The BJP government should not interfere in the jurisdiction of the elected government of Delhi,” said Chadha.
Raghav further said that in the last few months, we have repeatedly noticed that the BJP government is interfering continuously on the works of the Delhi government.
“The central government first rejected the home isolation module of the Delhi government and also rejected the lawyer panel of the AAP government for representing the Delhi riot cases. Lastly, today they have stopped the decision of reopening the hotels and weekly markets,” he said.
Chadha alleged the BJP to interfere in the works of the AAP government repeatedly. “It seems like the BJP government is trying to take revenge on the citizens of Delhi. On 8 June 2020 the BJP led Central government issued an order for all the states across India which clearly noted that the weekly markets and the hotels of the states should reopen,” he said.
In Delhi, the Delhi government took the decision to not open the hotels and the weekly markets at that point of time because the situation was not favourable but when today the Delhi government has decided to open the hotels and weekly markets the central government has stopped it," he said.
