My opinion on Delhi elections (and the inordinate delay thereof)

No institution, not the LG or the EC or the courts, should be allowed to delay a constitutional obligation, like the people's right to form their government, for so long. Their duty is to fix the schedule. They are NOT supposed to misuse this duty to prevent the elections from happening at all. Let's declare a date by which elections must happen, and let's have the people of Delhi conduct their own elections, with full 24/7 live streaming and video recording of all ballot boxes from first vote to last count, if the powers that be fail to live up to their obligations.
