LG bypassing Delhi Government in issuing prosecution sanction

Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on 24th January accused Lieutenant Governor VK Saxena and the chief secretary of issuing prosecution sanctions by bypassing the city government. He further said that both have created a situation where many people accused of committing serious offences against the state might go scot-free.

He alleged that such a situation in Delhi has arisen due to the over-enthusiasm of LG Saxena and the Chief Secretary to bypass the elected government against the IPC. Sisodia further accused the Delhi LG od illegal authorizing prosecution sanctions.

Sisodia’s office also said that LG’s actions undermine not only the law laid down by the Supreme Court which directs LG to be bound by the aid and advice of the Council of Ministries but also the sanctity of the Judicial process.
