'Won't interfere': Supreme Court dismisses case seeking ouster of Arvind Kejriwal as Delhi Chief Minister

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court dismissed a petition on Monday seeking Arvind Kejriwal's removal from the role of chief minister following his detention in a money laundering case related to the excise policy scam. "It is up to the Delhi LG to act if he wishes, but we will not interfere," a bench of Justices Sanjiv Khanna and Dipankar Datta stated.

The court stated that it is an issue of propriety, but there is no legal basis to demand Kejriwal's removal as chief minister following his incarceration.

"During the hearing, we asked them the same question. "Ultimately, it is a matter of propriety, and there is no legal right," the bench informed the petitioner.

The highest court was reviewing a motion from petitioner Kant Bhati, who was contesting the Delhi high court's judgment on April 10 to dismiss his claim.
