Delhi vs Centre: Arvind Kejriwal calls SC judgment ‘unconstitutional’, says party will seek legal remedies


FEBRUARY 14, 2019

New Delhi: Claiming the Supreme Court’s split verdict on the contentious issue of control of services in the National Capital Territory is against ‘Constitution and democracy’, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Thursday said the AAP government will seek legal remedies.

Addressing a press conference after the apex court order, he alleged that the BJP-led central government is creating hurdles in the functioning of the AAP dispensation.

“The judgment is against constitution and democracy. We will seek legal remedies,” Kejriwal said, adding it was “injustice to the people” of Delhi.

A two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan, however, agreed on their views on disputes pertaining to the anti-corruption branch, setting up of commission of inquiry, control over electricity boards, land revenue matters and appointment of public prosecutors.

The apex court also upheld the Centre’s notification that its employees cannot be probed in corruption cases by ACB of Delhi government. After the split verdict, it referred the matter to a larger bench.
