“The Legislative Assembly of NCT of Delhi having its sitting in Delhi on 26 November, 2018: Taking into consideration the following facts:
• That as per the records of the National Crime Records Bureau, the National Capital Territory of Delhi has acquired and has been consistently maintaining the dubious distinction of being the National Crime Capital as well,
• That the NCT of Delhi has become totally unsafe for its inhabitants, particularly women, children and elderly, in the wake of ghastly crimes such as rapes, kidnaps and murders becoming order of the day,
• That the people of NCT of Delhi live in perpetual fear as to whether the near and dear ones who are out on work would be able to return home safely at the end of the day,
• That due to subversive, disruptive and anti-people instructions given to Delhi Police by Union Government through Lt. Governor, the elected Government is not in a position to enlist any support from Delhi Police even in enforcing central laws such as Essential Services Maintenance Act, when needed,
• That the elected Chief Minister and Ministers can be attacked in their own office and at the public events hosted by the elected government,
• That those who attack the Chief Minister have the audacity to file complaint against the elected Chief Minister and pressure Delhi Police to register FIR against the Chief Minister,
• That the Delhi Police, in spite of its officials on duty being eye witnesses to such attacks on the Chief Minister, tries to hush them up with grossly illogical arguments which have turned the Delhi Police sadly into a butt of ridicule,
• That the Delhi Police is not accountable to the elected Government, the Legislators and the Legislative Assembly who are charged with the responsibility of looking after overall well being of the people of Delhi, • That the seven Members of LokSabha belonging to BJP and the recently retired three Members of RajyaSabha belonging to Congress have no proven record of their efforts to hold Delhi Police to account through Parliament, with 7 BJP Members of LokSabha actively assisting Delhi Police in spreading anarchy and harassment of ordinary people,
• That the elected government is not in a position to remove these grave deficiencies in the service of people on account of certain limitations imposed by the Constitution which kept ‘police’ out of the purview of the elected Government,
• That it has become a huge and unassailable challenge for the elected Government to discharge its functions and to look after public interest in the absence any control whatsoever over Delhi Police and
• That it is necessary for the elected Government to have certain degree of control over law enforcing agencies to ensure that decisions taken by it in public interest are implemented thereby contributing to welfare of people and also the public order, Resolves that:
The Union government take immediate steps, in larger public interest, to initiate necessary steps to bring the Police in Delhi under the control of the elected government of NCT of Delhi and to make it accountable to the Legislative Assembly as is the case with any other State in the Union of India, by way of amending the Constitution and relevant laws, and In the meanwhile, pending such amendments, necessary steps be initiated by the Government of India to devolve certain powers to the elected Government so that it is in a position to have control over Delhi Police in implementing its decisions, including the decision to invoke ESMA from time to time for smooth running of civic services in public interest and in promotion of public order and for providing for security of its functionaries in discharge of their duties.”

“The Legislative Assembly of National Capital Territory in its sitting held on Friday, 8th June 2018 resolves that:
Keeping in view the decades-old aspirations of the residents of National Capital Territory of Delhi for a better quality of life commensurate with their contribution to the country’s economy, which have been strongly and unambiguously reflected in the views expressed by Hon’ble members of this August House, the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India, must take all necessary legal and legislative steps to declare NCT of Delhi a fullfledged state without any further delay. This House notes with extreme disappointment that successive Central Governments have without any valid justification attempted to undermine the basic rights of the people of Delhi by denying them statehood. People of Delhi can no longer be kept at the mercy of a Central Government appointed Lieutenant Governor, who has no accountability towards the public and enjoys absolute power without any responsibility. Elected representatives are directly accountable to the voters and are rightly questioned by the people on issues affecting their daily lives and developmental issues. It is, therefore, beyond any legal and reasonable understanding that how can a politically nominated LG be the super-boss of a democratically elected council of ministers which is collectively responsible to the Legislative Assembly? Ever since 1952 and then later in 1993, when the Legislative Assembly was set-up in its present form for NCT of Delhi, every single elected Delhi Government has strongly demanded statehood in order to be able to fulfil the aspirations of the people. In 2003, the then Hon’ble Deputy Prime Minister and Home Minister Mr LK Advani had on 18th August 2003 presented the Constitution Amendment Bill and the Bill for statehood of Delhi in the LokSabha. The Parliamentary Standing Committee on Home Affairs, headed by the then chairman Mr Pranab Mukherjee in its 106th report tabled in Parliament in December 2003 had strongly endorsed the bill. Unfortunately, however, due to dissolution of the LokSabha a few months later, the bill lapsed. Strangely, no attempt was made to revive the bill after that despite the same party having been in power at the Centre and in Delhi for 10 years since 2004. This House is of the view that now since almost 16 years have passed since the previous Delhi statehood bill was presented in Parliament and there were some shortcomings in that bill, therefore the MHA must consult the elected Government to be on the same page about the fresh draft bill. This House resolves that the NDMC area in Delhi, which is governed by the NDMC Act be kept under the exclusive control of the Central Government, and the rest of NCT of Delhi be declared a full-fledged state through a Constitutional Amendment Bill. Earlier in 1990 also a Constitution Amendment bill for statehood of Delhi was planned but unfortunately that attempt also could not materialise. Therefore, the people of Delhi will not tolerate any further unjustified delay in granting them their rights, which have been denied for decades despite promises having been made by all political parties repeatedly in their election campaigns. This House strongly demands that the MHA must place the feelings of the people of Delhi before both Houses of Parliament in the form of a Constitution Amendment Bill to grant full statehood for Delhi.”

“The Legislative Assembly of the National Capital Territory of Delhi in its sitting held on 26 March 2018 resolves:
That having noted with serious concern the plight of officers of Delhi Administration Subordinate Services (DASS) Cadre, who have been facing acute stagnation at all levels due to long pending restructuring of their cadre and resultant lack of promotional avenues, our Cabinet approved the proposal for restructuring of DASS cadre vide Cabinet Decision No.2283 dated 31.12.2015. That to our utter dismay, this Cabinet Decision could not materialize till now, even after lapse of more than two years due to lackadaisical and indifferent attitude of the officers responsible for examining such service matters and placing proposals before appropriate authority for approval/implementation. Further, now having realized with great dissatisfaction that these authorities have overlooked the need of the hour and miserably failed in providing an efficient state administration of dedicated and motivated workforce to serve the people of Delhi, this House resolves that: Pursuant to Cabinet Decision No.2283 dated 31 December 2015, DASS Cadre be restructured and parity between DASS cadre and CSS Cadre as proposed in para 5 of the Cabinet Note be established immediately without any delay. Since the employees of Steno Cadre are also facing acute stagnation similar to DASS cadre, it is also resolved that Steno Cadre also be restructured on the pattern of CSSS cadre of GOI. All procedural formalities for amending the DASS Rules, 1967 and restructuring of DASS and Steno Cadre be completed by the Services Department exactly within a month from the date adoption of this Resolution by the House. Further, this House also resolves that the proposal be considered by the Hon’ble Lt. Governor, Delhi on priority and approval be accorded for its expeditious implementation.”

“This House strongly condemns the attempt by the Union Government to dilute the efforts for eradication of corruption from Delhi by curtailing the jurisdiction of the Anti Corruption Branch. Vide Gazette Notification dated 23rd July 2014, the Union Home Ministry has unilaterally restricted the powers of the Anti Corruption Branch and limited it to only the officers and employees of the Government of Nation Capital Territory of Delhi.

This House further resolves that the matter be immediately taken up with the Union Government to withdraw the notification and directs that the Anti Corruption Branch of the government of the National Capital Territory of Delhi should function as per its original mandate as it existed prior to the notification dated 23rd July 2014.”
