The Supreme Court will today hear the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) led Delhi Government’s plea seeking a direction that the high court be restrained from delivering its judgement on issues including the scope of powers of the city government to exercise its authority in performing public functions.
The Delhi Government had moved the apex court on Friday seeking a stay on the Delhi High Court’s proceedings in the tussle between the Centre and the national capital.
A bench headed by Chief Justice T.S Thakur will hear the plea in which it has been claimed that only the Supreme Court has jurisdiction under the Constitution to deal with issues relating to the powers of states and the Centre.
The AAP Government, in its appeal, has alleged that its power to do public services in the state has been adversely affected.
On May 24, the high court had reserved its verdict on the plea of the Delhi Government seeking a stay on the proceedings on the petitions arising out of its standoff with the Lieutenant Governor over powers to appoint bureaucrats in the national capital and other issues.
