It is up to Modi, Kejriwal govts to resolve disputes: SC

New Delhi, Sep 21: The alleged tug-of-war between the Centre and the AAP-led Delhi government today reached the Supreme Court which said it was up to them to sit across the table and resolve all disputes.

Refusing to entertain a PIL alleging that governance deficit has led to recent deaths from dengue, a bench of justices TS Thakur and V Gopala Gowda said it was for the two governments to sit together and resolve the disputes and give good governance.

SC distances from Centre-Delhi tussles

"This is a matter of governance and governance deficit, you cannot challenge. Your concern, we understand that there is the central government on the one hand and the government of Delhi on the other.... These problems can be sorted at their ends. If any order is bad then we can look into it," the bench said.

It said that it can come entertain a plea when a specific case is pointed out.

"Is this some kind of 'amrit dhara' petition. These are not matters in which we come in. If you bring a specific case, we can examine who is faulting...," it said.

It said if the two governments do not resolve their disputes and create governance problem, then the people will pass "appropriate verdict at appropriate time".
