The Supreme Court on Monday dismissed a petition filed against Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's sit-in strike outside the Lieutenant Governor's office cum residence in the national capital in June last year.
The petition sought the direction of the apex court to declare the sit-in of Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues outside the Lieutenant Governor's office as 'unconstitutional'.
The plea further said that a constitutional crisis was created due to "the unconstitutional and illegal" protest by the Chief Minister.
Kejriwal and his ministers protested to press for their demands, including a direction to IAS officers to end their strike and action against those who have struck work.
