The Supreme Court on Thursday delivered a spilt judgment on regulations of services in the national capital which lead to the power tussle between Delhi government and Lieutenant governor Anil Baijal.  Notably, the two-judge bench consisting o Justice Ashok Bhushan and Justice AK Sikri disagreed on the jurisdiction of Delhi government and center over appointment and transfer of bureaucrats in Delhi, but it said that ACB (Anti Corruption Bureau) will remain under the center’s control.

Now, the larger bench will intervene in the issue and will take a final decision who will take the final decision on transfer and appointment of bureaucrats in Delhi. Notably, a constitution bench on July 4, 2018, had asked both the authorities to practice collaborative federalism. The Court had restricted jurisdiction of L-G to matters of land, police and public order.  Notably, in other matters, L-G had to act on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers of the elected government of Delhi.

After the judgment of Supreme Court to let the matter on services be decided by a larger bench, AAP Party shared its reaction on Twitter with a short clip of Sunny Deol’s popular dialogue from Damini “ Tareek Par Tareek”

On the other hand, ruling party BJP is very happy with the verdict and said after the verdict there shouldn’t be any scope for confusion or conflict.
