Swaraj Abhiyan leader Yogendra Yadav reacted to the Delhi High Court order stating that the L-G of Delhi is the final authority in the matter of administration. In a series of tweets, Yadav, who was earlier a member of the Aam Aadmi Party, hit out at the Arvind Kejriwal government saying “the impetuous street fight by AAP government” had led to the setback of a “just demand of more powers for Delhi government.”

Citing the NCT Act, Delhi High Court on Thursday ruled that the L-G would remain the head of the National Capital Territory. The ruling comes as a major embarrassment to the ruling Aam Aadmi Party as the court said that the Delhi government’s claims were ‘without substance’. The Delhi government has said that they will file an appeal in the Supreme Court against the High Court verdict.

Taking a dig at former party aides, Yadav said on Twitter the Delhi High Court verdict showed how one could not rule “without understanding the grammar of governance.” He also said that the real issue was reduced to a mockery due to ‘childish tactics’ of the Delhi government, pushing back the government and the citizens of Delhi. Yadav also said that in order to govern, one needed to have patience and sensibility instead of “nautanki.

Yadav was expelled from AAP along with Prashant Bhushan and Professor Anand Kumar. The trio has since been working on their own political outfit Swaraj Abhiyan.

    Judgment does not tell about grammar of governance. It interprets the rules.

      Let the Lt. Governor explain the grammar of governance based on which all bills forwarded to him after being duly ped by the embly are held up/rejected without any cogent reason. Is the Lt. Governor's power arbitrary and whimsical ? Is he not accountable for his decision. What will happen if tomorrow, all bills ped by Modi cabinet and sent to President are held up on the ground that the President is the Authority on whose name Govt. runs. On the pretext of rulebook, one cannot perpetuate injustice.
