Not a setback, says AAP on SC’s refusal to stay order on LG


The Aam Aadmi Party put up a brave face after the Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay the 4 August verdict of the Delhi High Court on the LG’s powers, saying it should not be treated as a “setback” and the party has full faith on the judiciary.

“Terming it as a setback would be wrong as Supreme Court has listed the matter for further hearing and also said that it may consider sending the petitions to a larger bench. The party has full faith on the judicial proceedings,” AAP Delhi Convenor Dilip Pandey said.

However, the SC refused to stay the operation of 4 August verdict of the high court and said it would rather list the matter for final hearing on 15 November. The bench said it may consider referring the petitions to a larger bench after hearing arguments.
