Will move Supreme Court: Delhi Govt

 Delhi Government on Thursday said it will move to Supreme Court after the High Court judgement that went in favour of Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung in the distribution of power between AAP government and Jung.

 
"We will go to Supreme Court against this decision. We will have to see the judgement," Delhi government Home and Health Minister Satyendar Jain said.
 
The Delhi High Court on Thursday said that the Lt. Governor is not bound by the aid and advice of the Delhi government's council of ministers. It further added that that Delhi government notifications must be issued after consulting the LG.
 
Jain added, "Whatever be the decision, it will be taken by the constitutional bench of Supreme Court". 
 
In a huge setback to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government, court also added that the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) cannot initiate investigation against central government officials.
 
"Delhi government was stopped from acting against any kind of corruption, this was upheld in this decision," Jain said while reacting to a query on ACB.
