Delhi vs Centre: SC judgement unfortunate & unconstitutional, says Arvind Kejriwal


Calling the Supreme Court judgement unfortunate, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today said it’s injustice with people of Delhi. “The judgement is against Constitution and against the democracy,” Kejriwal said in a press conference.

“If a government can’t even transfer its officers, how is it supposed to function? The party that has 67 seats doesn’t have the rights but the party who won just three seats has those rights,” Kejriwal said.

Kejriwal also urged the people of Delhi to vote not only for the new Prime Minister of the country but also for their own future so that a good government is there at the Centre.

“We appeal to the people of Delhi, you have to strengthen us. Give votes to AAP MP on all seven seats in Delhi in upcoming Lok Sabha elections. We will fight for full statehood and betterment of Delhi,” he said.

The Supreme Court today delivered a split verdict on a batch of petitions challenging various notifications including on control of services and power of Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) in the ongoing tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre. The court decided on the six issues and four out of these issues has been ruled in favour of Centres while Delhi government will have power to rule on electricity and revenue issues.

However, the bench of two judges — Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan — didn’t agree on the contentious point on who can transfer officers posted in delhi and referred the issue to a three judge bench for a definitive ruling.
