SC directs AAP to vacate headquarters on land reserved for High Court infrastructure

Arvind Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is required to vacate its New Delhi headquarters located on land designated for the High Court. Despite the encroachment, the Supreme Court granted the party an extension until June 15, taking into consideration the approaching Lok Sabha elections.

The party has the opportunity to apply for alternative land through the Centre’s Land and Development Office.

Earlier in February, the court had noted that AAP was encroaching on land originally allotted for the expansion of the Delhi High Court.

Chief Justice of India DY Chandrachud emphasized today that no one is permitted to take the law into their own hands.

“How can any political party sit on it? All encroachments will be removed… The High Court should be given possession of the land, which can be used for the public and citizens,” said Justice Chandrachud.

“We direct that the Chief Secretary, PWD Secretary and Finance Secretary of Delhi Government should convene a meeting with the Registrar General of the High Court before the next date to ensure resolution of all issues,” he added.
