How Twitter users reacted to Delhi HC’s verdict on Kejriwal


In a setback for Kejriwal government, Delhi High Court on Thursday ruled that the Lieutenant Governor was the administrative head of National Capital Territory.

Delhi High Court also dismissed petition filed by AAP govt challenging powers of the LG in the state.

While pronouncing the verdict, the high court also said the Centre’s 21 May, 2015, notification barring Delhi Government’s Anti-Corruption Branch from proceeding against Central Government employees is neither illegal nor unsustainable.

It also said service matters fall outside the jurisdiction of Delhi Legislative Assembly and the LG exercising the powers in such matter is “not unconstitutional”.

The bench held as illegal AAP government’s order appointing Commission of Inquiry in the CNG fitness scam and Delhi and District Cricket Association scam since the same was issued without concurrence of LG.

The court said the appointment of Nominee Directors of Delhi Government on Board of BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd, BSES Yamuna Power Ltd and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd by the Delhi Power Company Ltd, on the basis of recommendations of the Delhi Chief Minister without communicating the decision to the LG for his views, is “illegal”.

The verdict by the High Court has dominated the social media conversations with users slamming the Delhi chief minister, Arvind Kejriwal.
