For the past 15 months, the people of Delhi have witnessed a war of words between the AAP govt and LG Najeeb Jung. The crux of the fight between the two sides is the special status given to Delhi by the Constitution. But that tussle for supremacy seems to be at an end, for now.
The Delhi High Court has dismissed a petition filed by the Kejriwal govt challenging the powers of Delhi LG in appointing bureaucrats in the capital. The court in its order described the Lieutenant Governor as the administrator of Delhi. While Jung welcomed the verdict, AAP quickly vowed to contest it by moving the Supreme Court. The BJP too joined the debate attacking the CM claiming Kejriwal has run out of excuses for his failures now.

@Bhatia ji, really, Kejriwal is an extra ordinary politicians? What are you talking about? Look at his Twitter accounts...only abuse Modi what else he has done so far? And playing Caste politics - what is extra ordinary about him? I have personally seen AAP supporters here in Chicago and Edmonton collecting funds from ethinic Pakistani nationalists on the name of Islam...!


In what way Delhi is superior to the Union Territory of Puducherry, which also has elected assembly and what about rights of Andaman & Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep, Chandigarh, Daman and Diu ? Why Delhi thinks it is still capital of Sultanate, what surely it is not. India is not a sultanate. I dont want Delhi to remain Capital of India. If Delhi is made a full fledged state, I think I will support creation of another Union territory which will become our National Capital. Let Kejriwal know this.
