Governor (LG) is not bound by the aid and advice of the Delhi government's council of ministers. A division bench of Chief Justice G.Rohini and Justice Jayant Nath ruled that Delhi government notifications must be issued after consulting the LG. "Policy direction can't be issued without communicating them to Lt. Governor," the bench said.

The court's judgement came on nine different petitions arising out of the spat between the LG and Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party government over the power to appoint bureaucrats in the national capital and other issues. LG Najeeb Jung will hold a press conference at 3.45pm on Thursday, ANI reports. The Delhi government now seeks to approach the Supreme Court with the matter.
