SC judgment on Delhi: Defer the grandstanding

There is some haze over what sort of matters warrant a reference to the President. It is only when the court gets down to the practical task of testing individual cases of ‘difference of opinion’ will we really know the lay of the land.
The Supreme Court concluded that the Lieutenant Governor (LG) is not a titular head, but rather, an ‘administrator’ as distinct from the Governor of a State. But in the hybrid constitutional scheme for the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi, involving two executives, the Court held that the LG must act in accordance with the aid and advice of the Council of Ministers.(Sonu Mehta/HT PHOTO)
