A day after High Court termed as "suspect" the Centre's notification restricting powers of the state government, BJP President Amit Shah also sought to de-escalate the confrontation, saying Modi dispensation was never in a conflict with AAP government.
He was asked about the Centre's tussle with the Delhi government over jurisdiction issues and its alleged "mistreatment" at a time when it was going to town about its several measures to give more powers to states.
"It is not a question of mistreatment. It is a question of different interpretations of the Constitution," he said.
In a shot in the arm for the AAP government, the Delhi High Court had yesterday observed as "suspect" the Centre's recent notification barring Delhi government's anti- corruption branch (ACB) from acting against its officers in criminal offences and held that it can act against officials.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had said the verdict was a "huge embarrassment" for the Modi dispensation.
