The Supreme Court on Wednesday gave more power to the elected government in Delhi and limited the role of the L-G.

"The Lieutenant Governor can't act in a mechanical manner and refer all decisions of the council of ministers to President.

The L-G's role can't be obstructionist, he must work together with the council of ministers and respect their decisions," Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra said while reading out the verdict of the five-judge Constitutional bench. In addition to the CJI, the bench comprised Justices AK Sikri, AM Khanwilkar, DY Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan.
