The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs on Wednesday informed the Delhi High Court that no land was available in Central Delhi for allocation to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) .
AAP had filed a plea before the Delhi High Court, seeking land in Central Delhi for its National Party office.
The Ministry stated that the AAP was previously offered permanent allotment elsewhere, but they specifically requested land on Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, located in Central Delhi.
The Union Ministry also informed the Delhi High Court that despite an offer for National Party Office near Saket Court Complex, the AAP hasn't responded.
The Union Ministry further clarified that it was not a property dispute, but a matter of available land.
The AAP countered the argument, claiming unequal treatment compared to other national parties. Counsel for AAP stated, “they are not being treated at Par with the other National Parties.”
The counsel for party also mentioned a Delhi Government minister willing to vacate 23-24 Rouse Avenue for AAP's office. Counsel for AAP submitted that one of the ministers of Delhi Government, who is presently residing at 23-24 Rouse Avenue, was ready to forego the accommodation if it is allotted to the AAP party for its National Office. “Our minister is willing to handover the possession,” counsel for AAP said.
However, the Union Ministry insisted that it can't allocate it until the minister vacates the place. “How can we allot it? Until we don’t have the possession of the said land,” the Ministry stated.
The High Court asked the Ministry to file an affidavit on these points, scheduling a final hearing for May 20.
