BJP MP Maheish Girri demands President's Rule in Delhi
BJP national secretary and MP Maheish Girri has demanded the dismissal of the AAP government in Delhi over "incompetence". President's Rule should be imposed, he said. He told the Lok Sabha that the Arvind Kejriwal administration has failed to deal successfully with civic affairs. Later, he tweeted that people of Delhi were suffering due to the "laxity of the government".
Another demand: One constituency under just one administrative body
Girri also said a parliamentary constituency should fall under just one administrative area instead of multiple ones. Eighty percent of his constituency (East Delhi) falls under East Delhi Municipal Corporation, and the rest under its South Delhi counterpart. Such divisions often lead to delays in decisions and execution of projects and wastes public money. Inter-departmental coordination also becomes hard with many different officials involved.
Other demands made in the Lok Sabha
In the Lok Sabha, BJD's Baijayant Jay Panda spoke about privacy: that the right to privacy must have "narrowly defined exceptions" and not be absolute. BJP's Pashupati Nath Singh urged rechristening of roads named after Akbar, Jahangir and others who "enslaved us"; he suggested renaming such roads after patriots. Shiv Sena was in agreement with Singh.
