Claiming that the Supreme Court’s split verdict on the contentious issue of control of services in the National Capital Territory is against the “Constitution and democracy”, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Thursday said the AAP government would seek legal remedies.

Addressing a press conference after the apex court order, he alleged that the BJP-led central government is creating hurdles in the functioning of the AAP dispensation.

“The judgment is against the Constitution and democracy. We will seek legal remedies,” Kejriwal said, adding that it was “injustice to the people” of Delhi.

A two-judge bench of the apex court comprising Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan, however, agreed on their views on disputes pertaining to the anti-corruption branch, setting up of commission of inquiry, control over electricity boards, land revenue matters and appointment of public prosecutors.

The apex court also upheld the Centre’s notification that its employees could not be probed in corruption cases by the ACB of the Delhi government. After the split verdict, it referred the matter to a larger bench. PTI
