"The House Committees and the Delhi government are two different entities and the role of the former is the make the latter more accountable," AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj, who is also the chairman of the Petition's Committee said in a Facebook Live.
Attacking the Centre, Bharadwaj said it has the "track record" to "leash" Delhi government's attempt to counter corruption.
Bharadwaj also alleged that the BJP leaders have been openly giving statements, advocating disbanding these committees.
Leader of Opposition in the Assembly Vijender Gupta has alleged that the government was adopting "unconstitutional measures" and "repressing" the opposition as well as senior government officials.
Gupta had also said he would also raise the issue of House Committees in the monsoon session, starting tomorrow, and questioned their way of functioning.
The Delhi Legislative Assembly has formed several House Committees to "ensure" accountability of the government officers.
In the past two months, the Committee on Petitions had summoned PWD Secretary Ashwani Kumar as well as Delhi Chief Secretary M M Kutty and Health Secretary Madhup Vyas to discuss the status of desilting of drains under the Public Works Department (PWD) and supply of medicines in government hospitals respectively.
The panel on desilting of drains also recommended divesting Kumar of his responsibilities as the PWD and Vigilance secretary and asked Kutty to submit an action taken report to the House within a month.
