100 Delhi Police personnel will be deployed
Let us inform that the kind of uproar and heckling that took place during the mayoral election on January 6, the MCD has made preparations for the election this time so that such incidents do not happen again. For the first time, about 100 Delhi Police personnel will be deployed from the entry gate to the outside of the House in the mayoral election. If needed, jawans can be called inside the House as well. To keep the situation under control, the MCD officials do not want to rely only on marshals this time.
No entry for supporters of leaders and councilors
Only those people who are needed will be given entry inside the House and in the Civic Center. That is, only those people who have to participate in the swearing-in ceremony will get the entry. To give entry to a limited number of people and to control the situation inside, the MCD has demanded the appointment of Delhi Police personnel this time. About 100 police personnel will be appointed. The number of media personnel has also been limited this time. Separate passes have been issued for these. Only those who have passes issued by MCD can go inside.
There may be an uproar even today
The issues on which there was an uproar during the mayoral election on January 6, remain intact in the mayoral election to be held on Tuesday. Both the ruling and the opposition are not ready to back down on the swearing in of the Alderman. Keeping in view the clash between the councilors and leaders of the ruling and opposition, concrete preparations have been made this time. BJP sources say that it will be an effort to start the mayoral election program from where it was postponed last time, on Tuesday. Means the nominated councilors should be administered oath first. If the swearing-in program of the nominated councilors gets postponed for some reason, then it is possible that they may not be sworn in for a long time. This will also affect the election of the chairman of the standing committee. BJP is in a strong position in 7 out of 12 zones including nominated councilors and their role in the election of chairman is decisive. The Aam Aadmi Party does not want to let the command of the Standing Committee slip out of its hands. It is believed that that is why you have objection to the oath of the nominated councilors during the mayoral election.
AAP claims first elected councilor will take oath
The Aam Aadmi Party has agreed to the agenda issued by the MCD for the election of Mayor, Deputy Mayor and Standing Committee members to be held today. On the other hand, Aam Aadmi Party MLA and MCD in-charge Durgesh Pathak held a press conference at the party office on Monday. He said that the Aam Aadmi Party is in full agreement with the agenda of the MCD. In the House meeting to be held on January 24, all our councilors will participate in the meeting following the agenda. First of all the elected councilors will be sworn in and then the nominated councilors will be sworn in. After that there will be election of mayor, deputy mayor and finally 6 members of the standing committee. We are completely satisfied with this to-do list. BJP is requested to follow this agenda and fully cooperate in the election process.
You can protest in the house
Pathak said that today even the MCD has accepted that the Aam Aadmi Party was absolutely right. On the same basis, a new work list has now been issued. We assure the people of Delhi that Aam Aadmi Party will follow every word written in this agenda. However, during the discussion held in the Vidhansabha last week, Deputy CM Manish Sisodia had clearly said that if the mayoral elections work according to the constitution, then the councilors of the Aam Aadmi Party will work peacefully, but if an attempt is made to break the constitution, So our councilors will not allow this to happen at any cost. Party sources say that if an attempt is made to vote for the nominated councilors in the mayoral election, then the Aam Aadmi Party will strongly oppose it.
