Party leader Arvind Kejriwal referred to the verdict as a "triumph of democracy". In light of the court's ruling, Kejriwal is scheduled to visit the Delhi Secretariat after several months and conduct a meeting with his cabinet, according to officials.

The Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision on Thursday, granting the Delhi government the authority to exercise legislative and executive powers over services. The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) expressed its appreciation for the verdict via a Hindi tweet, stating that the elected government would have the ability to transfer and assign officers, who would be obligated to operate solely under the elected government's direction.

The political party stated that the Lieutenant Governor will not possess authority to impede the efforts of the residents of Delhi. Meanwhile, Kejriwal conveyed his deep gratitude to the Supreme Court for ensuring fairness for the people of Delhi and anticipated a significant acceleration in the pace of progress. Raghav Chadha, an AAP member in the Rajya Sabha, hailed the verdict as a momentous ruling, emphasizing that it conveys a strong message.

"Truth prevails. Delhi emerges victorious. The Supreme Court's historic verdict strongly emphasizes that officials serving the Delhi government are intended to work for the people of Delhi under the elected government, not unchosen individuals appointed by the central government to hinder governance, particularly the Lieutenant Governor (LG)."

Atishi, a prominent leader and minister from the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), expressed her jubilation over the Supreme Court's verdict, describing it as a groundbreaking moment. She emphasized that after a prolonged struggle, the Arvind Kejriwal-led government in Delhi has finally received its rightful authority.

Atishi firmly believes that this decision will eliminate any hindrances in the path of serving the people of Delhi, allowing them to witness accelerated progress and development. In a celebratory Hindi tweet, she extended her congratulations to everyone involved.

During the Centre versus Delhi government case regarding the division of powers, a constitution bench led by Chief Justice DY Chandrachud stated that an elected government should have authority over the administration. 

The bench disagreed with Justice Ashok Bhushan's 2019 ruling, which stated that the city government lacked power over service-related matters. 

The constitution bench was established to address the legal matter concerning the extent of legislative and executive powers held by the Centre and the National Capital Territory government concerning the control of services in Delhi.
