Arvind Kejriwal strongly shocks, SC also recognizes LG’s ‘Boss of Delhi’: The Delhi government’s appeal in the case of the Delhi Government vs the Lieutenant Governor was heard in the Supreme Court. In the Supreme Court, the Constitution Bench of five judges gave their initial ideas to the Delhi Government. The court said that according to the provision the constitution has given prominence to the Lt Governor. The consent of the Lt Governor for Delhi Government is necessary. The rights of the Union Territory of Delhi Government have been interpreted in the Constitution and its boundaries are fixed. The rights of the Lieutenant Governor have also been identified. The court said that the President administers administrative work in Delhi through the Lt. Governor. The Delhi Government will also have to work within the ambit of the Constitution because it does not have control over land, police and public order. It seems that the Delhi Government is not willing to work under the purview of law. If there is any difference between the Delhi Government and the Lt. Governor, the matter will be referred to the President. The court said that unless it is specifically mentioned in front of the court that where the Lt. Governor is working out of his jurisdiction, it is not possible to test the issues for the court.

Gopal Subramanyam is debating on behalf of the Delhi Government. They said, we agree that Delhi is not a state but a union territory. In 1991 it was given special status through the act. Accordingly, Delhi has its own elected government. Under the 239AA, the Lt. Governor will have to get the consent of the Government of Delhi before taking any decision. He said that Parliament had made laws for Delhi before 239 AA, but even after the implementation of this, if the Center has this right, then it means that the shadow of earlier law is still intact.
The Delhi government said in the Supreme Court that Delhi has been given special status under the 239AA. It should be explained. Senior advocate Gopal Subramaniam, who appeared on behalf of the Delhi government, said that according to the 239AA, what does the government mean? Actually, it says that a chosen government that is accountable to the public. Himachal Pradesh Opinion Poll 2017
Under the 239AA, the Chief Minister, the Group of Ministers and the Assembly was made in Delhi. Gopal said that Delhi’s legislature is also like the legislatures of other states. Under 239AA if LG does not agree with the decision taken by the Group of Ministers, then the matter is referred to the President. Which means everything will need permission from LG for everything. In such a way LG has complete control. Whereas the elected government also has responsiveness towards the public.
