SC to hear plea on non-dissolution of Delhi assembly on Feb 24
New Delhi: The Supreme Court will on Monday hear the Aam Aadmi Party plea challenging Lt Governor Najeeb Jung`s decision not to suggest to the centre the dissolution of the Delhi assembly as recommended by then chief minister Arvind Kajriwal`s government.
The apex court bench headed by the Chief Justice P. Sathasivam agreed to hear the plea as counsel Kamini Jaiswal told the court that not dissolving the assembly would frustrate holding of the elections to the Delhi assembly along with those to the Lok Sabha.
The court was told that neither the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) nor the Congress was inclined or in a position to form the government, thus no purpose would be served by keeping the assembly in a suspended animation.
