SC refuses to stay HC order on LG supremacy

 The Supreme Court on Friday refused to stay a Delhi High Court order giving primacy to Lt Governor Najeeb Jung in Delhi's administrative affairs.

 
It sought the Centres response on a batch of appeals by the Delhi government challenging the August 4 ruling.
 
The apex court gave the Centre six weeks’ time to file its response and gave the Delhi government two weeks to file a response to the Centre's reply.
 
On a suggestion by senior counsel K.K. Venugopal who led the arguments for the Delhi government that the matter may be referred to a constitution bench, the top court said it will consider referring the entire issue to such a bench. 
 
It fixed November 15 for the final hearing of the plea.
