New Delhi: Delhi Assembly Speaker Ram Niwas Goel said on Thursday that Lt Governor Anil Baijal was "drunk on power" after the LG allegedly did not to reply to his letter seeking details of communication with the Centre on "reserved" subjects such as public order, police, services and land. A letter from Delhi Assembly was sent to the Lt Governor's office on March 27, seeking copies of communication on "reserved" subjects between the Centre and the LG. Mr Goel said he received no reply from Baijail's office to the letter. "It is highly condemnable that he did not find it fit to reply to a constitutional functionary. He is drunk on power," he told reporters at a press conference. Last month, the ministry of law had advised the Delhi Lt Governor's office to communicate to the Assembly Speaker that he should not admit questions related to reserved subjects.

The answers related to these subjects were denied to the Assembly by the concerned department in the Budget Session.

 

"Baijal is protecting the officials. Why cannot Delhi MLAs ask questions over Delhi Police and DDA that concern the interests of people who have voted for them," Mr Goel said. The speaker further said that Budget Session was interrupted by opposition members.
