The members of Aam Aadmi Party must have rejoiced after the Supreme Court earlier Wednesday observed that the government of Delhi must be given more powers to function properly.
"The elected government in Delhi should have some powers otherwise it cannot function. The matter needs to be decided fast", a bench of Justices A K Sikri and A M Sapre said.
The bench has listed the matter for final hearing on January 18, while it will hear other matter in details.
AAP earlier had challenged high court ruling which has ordered that the Lieutenant Governor (LG) was the administrative head and whose prior consent is needed in all administrative decisions, AAP advocate Gopal Subramaniam said.
"The elected government in Delhi cannot appoint the chief secretary or cannot even appoint a class IV officer by itself," Subramaniam said.
