BJP More Powerful Than AAP With Only 3 Seats: Kejriwal on SC Order

Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said on Thursday, 14 February, that the Supreme Court’s order on the power tussle between the AAP government and the lieutenant governor was against the people of Delhi.

He said that the BJP exercises more power in the national capital than the ruling Aam Aadmi Party, despite winning only three seats in the Assembly.

In its verdict on Thursday, a two-judge bench comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan agreed that the Anti-Corruption Bureau and setting up of an inquiry commission fall under the L-G’s control, while the Delhi government has jurisdiction over electricity boards, land revenue matters and appointment of pubic prosecutors.

The top court, however, was split over who controls ‘services’, and has referred the matter to a larger bench.
