Delhi mayor election postponed again due to uproar.

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) House has been adjourned sine die once again. This is the third time in a month that this has happened in the midst of an uproar without electing a mayor. BJP corporators and common man corporators came face to face and raised slogans and there was a ruckus in the house, it was said by the presiding officer in the MCD House that the aldermen i.e. nominated corporators can hold elections for mayor, deputy mayor and standing committee members Means you can vote, which you councilors strongly opposed. After that an uproar started in the MCD House.

Presiding officer Satya Sharma said that the elders will be allowed to vote in the election of mayor, deputy mayor and members of the standing committee.

The councilors of the Aam Aadmi Party opposed this announcement. Party leader Mukesh Goyal said that the elderly cannot vote. On this Satya Sharma said that people have sent you here to serve, let the elections be held. This is the third session of the House after the municipal elections held on December 4.

The first two sessions, held on January 6 and January 24, were adjourned by the presiding officer without electing a mayor following uproar and heated exchanges between members of the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party.

Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia wrote in his tweet that the BJP councilors in MCD are not allowing the mayor’s election even today by creating ruckus without any reason…. AAP councilors are sitting quietly but BJP councilors are creating ruckus without any reason.

“The only hope is the Supreme Court”

Apart from this, Saurabh Bhardwaj, the leader of Aam Aadmi Party, said that tomorrow in some state, the Governor should make the Pro-tem Speaker of the other party and he should form the government of anyone? Today the Aldermen, tomorrow the LG and the day before yesterday the dead councilors should also vote? To avoid uproar, should we set the constitution on fire? Only the Supreme Court is the hope of the country.

According to the Delhi Municipal Corporation (DMC) Act, 1957, the Mayor and Deputy Mayor are to be elected in the very first session of the House after the civic elections. However, it has been two months since the municipal elections and Delhi is yet to get a mayor.
