New Delhi, The Delhi High Court has dealt a major blow to the Kejriwal government. The Delhi High Court has banned the AAP government’s door-to-door ration scheme. Significantly, there have been disputes between the Center and the Delhi government over the scheme.
The Delhi government’s decision to distribute rations has been scrapped by the acting chief justice of the Delhi High Court. The court has ruled on a petition filed by the Delhi Government Ration Dealers Association opposing the scheme.
The High Court had granted two petitions of ration dealers challenging the CM’s door-to-door ration scheme. Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Jasmeet Singh said the Delhi government was free to come up with any other scheme for door-to-door delivery, but could not use the foodgrains provided by the Center for door-to-door delivery.
Significantly, the court had on January 10 reserved its order on an application filed by the Delhi Government Ration Dealers Association and the Delhi Ration Dealers Union. Importantly, this was Arvind Kejriwal’s ambitious plan, but it led to tensions between the Center and the Delhi government. Now the High Court has quashed the scheme.HS2
