Delhi Civic Centre chaos as House cuts key panel’s powers amid protest

The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led municipal administration in Delhi has pushed through a proposal to transfer the powers of the key standing committee to the house of councillors, causing chaos and protests from the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). Some experts say the transfer of powers is not legally feasible and can only be done if the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act is amended by Parliament. The standing committee controls the finances of the corporation and all proposals with financial implications over ₹5 crore ($698,000) must be approved by the committee before being presented to the house.
