Supreme Court extends deadline for AAP to vacate its Delhi office.

NEW DELHI: The Supreme Court has once again extended the deadline for the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to vacate its Delhi office premises on Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg, setting the new deadline as August 10. Previously, in March, the court had extended the deadline for vacating the Rouse Avenue offices until June 15. This decision stems from the court's recognition that the land was initially allocated for expanding judicial infrastructure for the Delhi High Court.

The bench, consisting of Chief Justice D Y Chandrachud and Justices J B Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, instructed AAP to seek alternative land from the Land and Development Office (L&DO). The court emphasized that AAP does not have the legal right to continue occupying the current premises.

In the March ruling, the court had stated, "In view of impending general elections it gives time to AAP till June 15 to vacate its political office located on a plot that was allotted to the Delhi High Court for the purpose of expanding the district judiciary." The bench also urged the L&DO to process AAP's application and communicate its decision within four weeks, stressing the importance of a swift resolution.

Senior advocate Abhishek Singhvi, representing AAP, argued that despite the party's national status, it has been given less favorable premises compared to other national parties. "They are telling us as a national party we get nothing. I'm given Badarpur, while everyone else is in better places," Singhvi said. The court acknowledged this situation, extended the deadline, and reiterated AAP's obligation to adhere to the land allocation intended for judicial purposes.

Previously, the Supreme Court had directed the Delhi government and the Registrar General of the Delhi High Court to address the issue of AAP's encroachment on land designated for the High Court at Rouse Avenue.
