The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government Monday asked the Supreme Court to ensure that its issues with the office of the Lieutenant Governor (L-G) over power to administer the national capital are not complicated further by actions based on the Shunglu Committee report.

The three-member Shunglu Committee was formed by L-G Najeeb Jung to look into 400-odd files pertaining to decisions taken by the AAP regime. The panel submitted its report on Sunday and the L-G’s office is now supposed to examine it and take decision.

Representing the Delhi government, senior lawyer Gopal Subramanium said that it would be appropriate if no precipitative action is taken based on the Shunglu Committee report.

“Your concern has been duly noted by the other side…we will hear this aspect also when we take up the matter on the next date (December 5),” responded a bench led by Justice A K Sikri, referring to Solicitor General Ranjit Kumar, who appeared for the Centre and the L-G. Kumar replied that the report was filed a day ago and that he had no idea about its content or recommendations.
