Kejriwal: SC notice to Centre, Delhi government
New Delhi, Jan 24 : The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Centre and the Delhi government while observing the issue that whether the Chief Minister of a state along with his cabinet colleagues can hold a dharna on the streets in support of his demand, as done by Arvind Kejriwal.
A bench of justices R.M. Lodha and Shivakirti Singh has sent the legal notice acting on a writ petition, filed by advocate Manohar Lal Sharma, that stated whether "law makers could themselves become law breakers."
The petitioner want action against the Chief Minister, who allegedly violated his oath of office.
Earlier, the Delhi Police on Wednesday said they have filed First Information Reports (FIRs) against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) supporters for disobeying prohibitory orders and holding a two-day dharna at Rail Bhavan.
The FIRs were lodged against unknown people at the Parliament Street police station for violating Section 144 of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), violence and inciting a mob.
However, the police did not name Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in any of the FIRs.
