Big Win for Kejriwal: Democracy and Federalism Upheld
In a landmark ruling, the Supreme Court has given a significant boost to the Delhi government led by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. The court upheld the principles of democracy and federalism, stating that these form a part of the basic structure of the constitution, ensuring the survival of diverse interests and accommodating diverse needs.
Delhi Government Granted Power to Appoint Officers
In a move that further empowers the Kejriwal government, the Supreme Court has stated that the Delhi government now has the authority to appoint officers. This power was previously a contentious issue between the Lieutenant Governor (LG) and the Delhi government.
Balance of Power: States vs Union
While acknowledging the power of States to make appointments, the Supreme Court also highlighted that the executive power of the State will be subject to the existing laws of the Union. The court emphasized the need to ensure that the governance of States is not taken over by the Union, upholding the balance of power within the country’s federal structure.
Implications of the Supreme Court’s Ruling
This Supreme Court ruling marks a significant victory for the Kejriwal government in its longstanding tussle with the Centre over the division of powers. It could potentially set a precedent for similar conflicts involving States and the Union in the future.
