After the AAP-Delhi government led received a huge setback following the Supreme Court verdict on the power tussle between Arvind Kejriwal's government and the Centre, the party has targeted the honourable institution.

AAP MP Sanjay Singh has attacked the institution and tweeted questioning the top court's verdict, even asking whether it has lost all its dignity.

He also said that the apex court has failed to deliver justice.

"Has the Supreme Court lost all its dignity? 'Justice delayed is justice denied' The public respects the judge as it respects God but God has failed to deliver justice," he says in the tweet.

The Supreme Court on Thursday has given its verdict on the power tussle between Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi and the Centre.

The two-judge Constitution bench of the Supreme Court, comprising Justice AK Sikri and Justice Ashok Bhushan, agreed on most issues except the matter of issue over control of services which has been referred to a larger bench.

The partial verdict could be a setback for the Delhi government as it was seeking more control over operations in the national capital.

The apex court has decided that the Centre has the power to set up an inquiry commission. This means that the Delhi government will not be able to probe central government officials. 

The SC has ruled that the Centre will have authority over the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB). 

The Centre will have authority over the Delhi Police.

BJP's spokesperson Nalin Kohli said, "The Supreme Court has made it amply clear that the question of services is with L-G - the authority over the Joint Secretary, Commison of Inquiry, ACB... No notification without clearance from L-G can be given out..."

Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal will hold a press conference at 1 pm later on Thursday.
