kejriwalNEW DELHI : Delhi Chief Minister and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) national convenor Arvind Kejriwal welcomed the apex court verdict as a “big victory” for the people of Delhi and democracy.

AAP hails SC verdict on Delhi power tussle, accuses Modi govt of creating ‘chaos’ | Heaving a sigh of relief over the Supreme Court verdict on the power tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre, the AAP leadership today accused the Narendra Modi-led administration of creating “chaos” in the national capital in the last three-and-a-half years.
“Can Modiji revoke 3 years 5 months of chaos in Delhi? Will Delhi people forgive BJP for ruining 3 years 5 months (sic)?,” AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj asked in a tweet.
LG) could not interfere with the policy decisions of the AAP government, the Left parties today said the judgment once again showed that the rights of elected governments could not be usurped.
CPI(M) general secretary Sitaram Yechury said the misuse of power by the LGs and governors into “sharp” focus. “The role of LGs and Governors and their misuse has been brought into sharp focus by today’s judgement. BJP’s charade of cooperative federalism and in reality destroying our federal structure is condemnable.

“AAP Govt was formed in Feb 2015, three months later, In May 2015, Modi Govt brought this notification which took away ‘services’ from AAP Govt. This means Sheila Dixit Govt had all control over her officers/employees, Kejriwal Govt was left with zero control (sic).”
“Modi Govt was formed in May 2014 & just 2 months later, Modi Govt brought a notification which took away powers of Anti-Corruption branch. Means Sheila Dixit had ACB for 15 years but was taken away because Modi was too scared of Arvind Kejriwal and his ACB (sic),” Bhardwaj said in a series of tweets.

Why did the LG (with a fine track record) allow himself to be misdirected in law by his political masters? Whoever in the Central Govt was responsible for triggering the legal battle should own responsibility, but nobody will..tweeted Congress Leader P Chidambram.
M K Stalin welcomes Supreme Court’s verdict on Delhi Government vs L-G Anil Baijal: Governors in states with full powers should act understanding this verdict well.
Meanwhile, The Supreme Court verdict on the power tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre had done away with all the possibilities of a “blame game” between the BJP and the AAP and the two parties should now ensure that the development of the national capital, which was “stalled” for years, started again, the Congress said today.
DPCC Chief Ajay Makan said  we hope that the development, which has been stalled ever since the Congress was voted out of power over four years ago, will start again. .
Indira Jaising, Lawyer for Delhi Government said “The victory today belongs to the people of Delhi and the spirit of the Constitution. This is how a true Constitutional Court functions. All five of them rose to the occasion and reinforced our democratic rights. People are sovereign,they said.” (With Agency Inputs ).
