The Union government has informed the Supreme Court that it will give a six-month extension to Delhi's chief secretary, Naresh Kumar. The court questioned why there was no other officer eligible to take over, prompting the Delhi government to oppose the extension and demand a consultative process for the appointment of the next chief secretary. The court suggested that the central government propose five officials for the post, from which the Delhi government could choose. The hearing has been adjourned until tomorrow. The Delhi government has been in conflict with Kumar over the administration of the national capital territory.
