Centre scraps AAP-appointed probe into DDCA

DDCANEW DELHI: Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung has written to the Delhi government striking down a panel set up by the Aam Aadmi Party administration to probe alleged irregularities in the city’s cricket association.
In a letter to the Delhi chief secretary, the L-G’s office said the Union home ministry had held that the commission of inquiry set up by the AAP government was illegal and unconstitutional.

The home ministry has declared the one-person commission – headed by noted lawyer Gopal Subramaniam – “null and void” because only the Centre and states were allowed to form a commission of inquiry.
As Delhi was a special state – with no powers to regulate land and police and partial control over services matters – it couldn’t constitute such a panel.
“The home ministry has conveyed its decision to the L-G. A policy has been decided that the Delhi government is not competent to set up such an inquiry commission,” said a ministry source.

The view in the home ministry was that the Delhi government issued the notification without Jung’s approval and the city government was not competent to constitute such an inquiry.
An earlier commission of inquiry instituted by the Delhi government to look into the CNG fitness certificate issue was also declared null and void as the ministry held the Delhi government was not a competent authority to set up this kind of inquiry under the provisions of the Constitution and the Commission of Inquiry Act of 1952.
But despite the adverse decision, the Delhi government refused to disband the Aggarwal commission of inquiry and the issue of its validity is now pending in court.-Agencies
