Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party government today announced that a two-day special session of the Delhi Assembly  will be held on May 26 and May 27 to discuss the controversial notification issued by the Centre.

“A special session has been called on May 26 and May 27 to discuss the Centre’s notification which has taken away power from the Delhi assembly,” the Delhi government said in a statement.

The statement further said that legal opinions from constitutional expert  former Solicitor General of India Gopal Subramanium were placed before the cabinet and discussed in the meeting.

Earlier in the day former solicitor general Gopal Subramanium had said that the Central Government’s notification giving Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung, the final say in posting and transfer of Delhi government bureaucrats is “illegal and unconstitutional.

After Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sought the former solicitor general’s opinion on the ongoing tussle, Subramanium said, “It singularly lacks propriety when the president is still seized with the question.”

“The cabinet also decided that depending on the requirement, the session can be extended further,” the statement said.
