Arvind Kejriwal government moves Supreme Court against HC's judgement on Delhi LG's powers

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 31 August 2016, 19:27 IST

On 31 August, the Aam Aadmi Party government moved the Supreme Court to challenge the High Court order that said the Lt Governor was the administrative head of Delhi.

Following the High Court's decision, the Delhi government had claimed that the order "undermined" the powers given by the Constitution to the council of ministers .

This comes a day after Delhi's Lt governor, Najeeb Jung transferred a number of officers involved in building Mohalla clinics and schools.

The Lieutenant Governor had also appointed a three-member committee on 30 August to examine over 400 files submitted by the Delhi Government alleging "irregularities".

The scuffle between the AAP and the Lt governor escalated after the High Court held that the LG is the administrative head of the National Capital Territory and the AAP Government's contention that he is bound to act on the advice of Council of Ministers was "without substance".

The Aam Aadmi Party had earlier alleged that the Lieutenant Governor is behaving like a "king" and is interested in spreading dictatorship in the national capital.
