The Chief Justice of India says Delhi cannot be given the status of a state in view of an earlier nine-judge judgment. Follow live updates here:
A five-judge constitution bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra gave its verdict on the Delhi government’s tussle with the Centre over administrative control and governance of the national capital on Wednesday.
CJI Dipak Misra has read his verdict and the four other judges are now reading their verdicts.
Both the Centre, with the L-G at the helm, and the Delhi government have been locked in a bitter power tussle ever since the AAP swept to power in Delhi in 2015.
