Big win for Arvind Kejriwal's AAP, SC says LG bound by advice of Delhi government
The Delhi government had moved the apex court to challenge a Delhi High Court verdict that held that the Lt Governor held primacy over an elected government in the administration of Delhi. Asserting that it had the executive powers on which it can aid and advice the Lt Governor, the Arvind Kejriwal government had contended that an elected government can`t be treated subservient to an overriding authority of the Lt Governor.
According to the SC verdict, "All decisions of council of ministers must be communicated to LG but that doesn't mean concurrence of LG is required." Image source: PTI
