'Any anti-constitutional decision can be opposed by LG', says Subramanian Swamy on SC verdict
New Delhi,July 4: Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday said that what SC said is correct, but if any anti-national security or anti-constitutional decision is taken, then LG can oppose.
Speaking to media, Swamy said,''Yes what SC said is correct that LG must respect Delhi cabinet decisions, but if any anti-national security or anti-constitutional decision is taken, which they are capable of taking, as they are Naxalite type people, then LG can oppose.''
Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court set a clear message on Wednesday in the power struggle between the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Centre over control of the Delhi government. While acknowledging that the Lieutenant Governor was the top executive in Delhi, it said the LG is bound by the advice of the elected government, and must be aligned with the cabinet at all times.
