AAP government begins process to appoint Lokayukta, Delhi HC intimated

3

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has initiated the process to appoint a Lokayukta, a post which has remained vacant since November 2013.

AAP’s plans were intimated to the Delhi High Court on Friday through an affidavit filed by Delhi government’s concerned department before Justice VP Vaish. It said the Delhi government is “firmly committed to implementing the Lokayukta Act”.

AAP also sought the dismissal of former BJP MLA Sat Prakash Rana seeking the same saying it was a “motivated petition, filed… For achieving narrow political gains” and not “public interest”.

“Proviso (A) to Section 3 of Lokayukta Act, mandates that Lokayukta is to be appointed in consultation with Delhi High Court Chief Justice and the Leader of Opposition. The answering respondent (Delhi government) in compliance of the said statuary mandates, initiated the process of consultation by submitting its suggestion for filling in the vacant post of Lokayukta in a sealed cover, by a letter date July 10, 2015, to Delhi High Court Chief Justice,” the Delhi government affidavit said.

“It is therefore most respectfully submitted that the process of appointment of Lokayukta has been initiated and is in process. The present petition may be kindly dismissed as infructuous,” it added.

    DAWNING SUN IS SHINING, THE LIGHTS OF HOPE TO PEEP ……………….

    AAP had taken birth from JAN LOKPAL MOVEMENT. How can anyone disrespect his mother’s womb? Tabelling Jan Lokpal Bill in Delhi Vidhan Sabha was never been unconstitutional. Arvindji can be fooled by Congress how promised unconditional support and betrayed, but Arvindji never compromised with his principles. That’s why he didn’t ask for referendum again after giving resignation ………..

    3D Modi-Magic swept LOK SABHA only because of advertising, Just as fairness creams are being sold and doing business in crores. So nothing to be surprised to find the hypocrite BJP’s preposterous government of JUMLAS !!!!!!!!!!!!.

    AAP is a party of strict ideology. So the situation may appear to be “my way or highway”. Unfortunately in earlier episode AAP had to take the path of “highway”. But this time AAP is pulling its socks up to get the job done with the BLESSINGS OF STUPENDOUS MANDET AND ABSOLUTE MAJORITY ……………
