Senior lawmaker G Subramanium has reacted to the ongoing tussle between Delhi government and Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung over appointment of Shakuntala Gamlin as Chief secy.
Subramanium said, ” It is constitutionally unviable for LG to act dehors (without agreement of) the aid & advice of council of ministers:
Subramanium also stated that all this would fall foul of basic structure of Constitution as it undermines basic features of democracy & the cabinet form of government.
Gopal Subramanium`s legal opinion to Delhi government comes at a time when other constitutional experts like Indira Jaising and Rajeev Dhawan took the government`s side and termed LG`s actions unconstitutional.
