Attack on Federal Structure of the Constitution: CPI
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India issued the following statement today (on March 23, 2021):
The Communist Party of India strongly disapproves the way the National Capital Territory (NCT) of Delhi (Amendment Bill 2021) was passed using the tyranny of majority in Parliament by the BJP government. It snatches away the power of the elected government of Delhi, while there is a long standing demand for full statehood for Delhi.
Party feels that it is a frontal attack and an assault on the federal structure of the Constitution, and amendments in NCT of Delhi law are against the Supreme Court judgment.
Party expresses its concern over the anti-federal attitude of the central government which is being repeatedly demonstrated while passing farm laws, new education policy and even labour codes.
