The MHA issued a notification which said Lt Governor is not obliged to consult the Chief Minister on key issues of governance like the police, land distribution and clearances, and the appointment  of bureaucrats.

Earlier, striking a conciliatory note, the Centre on Tuesday said it will not interfere with the functioning of the AAP government, a day after it was hauled by the Delhi High Court over the "suspect" notification that gave the Lt Governor massive powers in some matters.

Affirming that there would be no interference by the Centre, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh has cited everybody should work within the constitutional framework. "Everybody should work within the constitutional provisions. And I would like to add that Delhi government has been elected by the people and the central government will not create any hurdles in the functioning of Delhi government. We will also give them full cooperation," Singh told reporters.
