SC rules in favour of AAP led-Delhi government

AAP DELHI Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi, July 4 (IANS) The Supreme Court on Wednesday ruled in favour of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led-Delhi government and said that the Lieutenant Governor is bound to act on the aid and advice by its Council of Ministers.

The LG is also bound to send files to the President in case of differences of opinion, in exceptional matters.

The court said the LG has not been inferred with independent decision-making powers. He cannot act as an “obstructionist”.

The apex court added that the LG and the AAP led-Delhi government have to work harmoniously.

The LG must realise that it is the Council of Ministers, who are answerable to the people and he cannot stall every decision of the National Capital Territory (NCT) government, the bench said.
