New Delhi: The Supreme Court will re-hear on Friday the central government’s plea challenging Delhi High Court holding that lieutenant governor has no power in the posting and transfer of bureaucrats in the Delhi government.

The apex court vacation bench of Justices S.K. Sikri and U.U. Lalit on Thursday said they will hear the matter on Friday as Additional Solicitor General Maninder Singh urged the court to hold an urgent hearing of the matter. 

The Delhi High Court by its verdict had held erroneous the central government notification putting all the services under lieutenant governor.
