The Supreme Court will now hear together the Delhi Government’s civil suit seeking a declaration that the national capital is a state and its petition against the order of the High Court which held that the city is a Union Territory with Lieutenant Governor as its administrative head.

This was stated by a bench of Justices A K Sikri and N V Ramana today after the Arvind Kejriwal government informed the Apex court that it will file an appeal shortly against yesterday’s High Court verdict.

As AAP government’s earlier suit came up for hearing, the court said that instead of pursuing its earlier civil suit, the city government should file an appeal challenging the Delhi High Court’s decision.
