AAP vs LG LIVE: Kejriwal says govt can't work if it can't transfer officers

The Supreme Court on Thursday delivered a split verdict on whether the Delhi government has powers to appoint and transfer civil servants.
Justice Sikri held that transfers and posting of officers of and above the rank of Joint Secretary are under the powers of lieutenant-governor and other officers are under the control of Delhi Government.
While the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) said the decision of the Supreme Court was "unfortunate", BJP welcomed the verdict saying it removes ambiguities in the powers of the Delhi government.
Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said the verdict was against the constitution.
