New Delhi: The Supreme Court today agreed to hear on Monday the plea of AAP government in Delhi seeking a direction that the High Court be restrained from delivering its judgement on issues including the scope of powers of the city government to exercise its authority in performing public functions.

A bench headed by Chief Justice T S Thakur will hear the appeal of Delhi government in which it has been claimed that only the apex court has jurisdiction under the Constitution to deal with issues relating to the powers of States and Centre.

Senior advocate Indira Jaising, appearing for the Arvind Kejriwal-led government, mentioned the matter for urgent hearing before the bench that also comprised Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud.

"No judgement be allowed to be delivered without decision on the jurisdiction of the Delhi High Court with regard to the dispute in question," the senior lawyer said.

She further said that the dispute is centered around the powers of Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) under Article 239A of the Constitution.

It has been alleged by the AAP government that it is unable to function as most of its decisions are either annulled or changed by Centre at the behest of Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung on the ground that Delhi is not a complete state.
