Supreme Court sends AAP – Central Govt. battle back to High Court


The Supreme Court of India has wisely refused to get involved in the power tussle between the AAP and Central Government in Delhi and opined that the High Court should decide on the controvertial Home Ministly notification that had declarred that CM of Delhi had limited powers and writ of Lt. Governor over Civil servants would be supreme.

Kejwiral had challenged the notification in Delhi High Court and responding to the petition the High Court Judge had called the notification “suspect” and said that the Lt. Governor who represents the centre, is ” bound to act upon the aid and advise of the Delhi Government council of Ministers. Modi government had found the tag ‘suspect’ objectionable and had approached the Supreme Court urging that it hear the case independently without getting influenced by any observations made.

Kejriwal has been alleging that the BJP Government, despite its humbling electoral defeat in Delhi elections, is trying to run the state by proxy through the powers vested in the Lt. Governor, Jung.

In the two days ‘Emergency session’ of the Delhi assembly last week, the Delhi ‘House’ had declared the Central MHA notification illegal.
