In a recent development, the Supreme Court (SC) of India extended the time given to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to vacate its Rouse Avenue Party office in New Delhi till August 10, 2024. The SC vacation bench constituting Justice Vikram Nath and Justice Sandeep Mehta passed the order while hearing an application filed by the AAP seeking an extension of the earlier deadline, June 15, 2024, fixed by the top court to vacate the premises. This order to vacate the premises by June 15 was delivered by the SC on March 04, after noting that the plot was allotted to the Delhi High Court (HC) for expanding judicial infrastructure. After hearing the contentions of the Amicus Curiae, Advocate K Parmeshwar, and counsel appearing for the AAP, Senior Advocate Abhishek M. Singhvi on June 10, the SC bench said, “Considering facts and circumstances of the case, as the last opportunity, we extend the time granted by earlier order till August 10, 2024, on an undertaking by the applicant within week from today (June 10) before the registry that they will hand over peaceful possession of property by August 10.” Earlier on June 05, the Delhi High Court directed the Central government to take an appropriate decision on providing temporary office accommodation for the AAP in 6 weeks.
