Debate - Future of AAP after internal bickering?

Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP's) recent mammoth victory in Delhi was a super-landslide (the winning party securing 90 percent or more seats). Even the Congress which had the natural advantage of leading the freedom struggle successfully and had stalwarts like Mahatma Gandhi, Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi could never achieve it in any general election despite dominating the political scene in the country post independence. The rise of the Aam Aadmi Party indicated that people once again saw politics as an act of faith and hope but given the bickering among its leaders in too short a span, the question that now arises is -what is the future of AAP ?

NJAC recommendation must for appointment
As per NJAC Act, after its enforcement, NJAC can recommend names and president may appoint on that recommendation. There is no saving clause in act which can regularize the pending matter. So after that without recommendation of NJAC every appointment is illegal and those names will not be accommodated by NJAC .

Notification of National Judicial Appointments Commission

The notification for constituting NJAC was issued on April 13, 2015. A five-member Constitution Bench of SC will examine the validity of the notification. Is this the beginning of a confrontation between the Parliament and Judiciary, the two pillars of democracy. Top jurists and retired judges of SC have levelled allegations of nepotism, favouritism, arbitrariness and partiality on the erstwhile Collegium system. Will the SC stay operation of notification, one wonders ?

Recent appointments as CVO's show that certain persons want to stay in Delhi power centre to lobby. It seems that power was robbed by certain regions. It is very dangerous. It enhances corruption rather than remove it. Government should look into it.








Copies of correspondence regarding bank loan

The Appellant and her husband availed a housing loan and a case was filed by them in the Consumer Court regarding charging of excessive interest on the loan account. The Appellant sought copies of two letters exchanged between the zonal office and a branch of the bank. Respondents submitted that housing loan was granted to the Appellant for purchase of land and construction of house thereon, but construction was not carried out and the account has become NPA. The Respondents further submitted that copies of the letters sought by the Appellant were not provided as it is their internal correspondence and held in a fiduciary capacity. The CIC held that the correspondence pertains to the loan account of the Appellant and is not held by the Respondents in a fiduciary capacity. Disagreeing with the denial of information under section 8(1)(e) of the RTI Act, the CIC directed the PIO to provide the copies of the two letters sought by the appellant free of cost.


If there was any part of the correspondence which was of commercial interest to the bank, perhaps a claim could have been made for exemption from disclosure for that particular part of letter under section 8 (1) (d) of the RTI Act.
