Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has hailed the Supreme Court verdict on the power tussle between the Delhi government and the Centre as a big victory for the people of the city and for democracy. The Apex Court has held that Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal does not have independent decision-making powers, and is bound to act on the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers. However, former Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said Arvind Kejriwal is trying to divert the attention of people.
