Arguing for Delhi government in its effort to carve out specific areas for unhindered exercise of its executive power, senior advocate Indira Jaising told a bench of Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justices A K Sikri, A M Khanwilkar, D Y Chandrachud and Ashok Bhushan that there was no reference in the Constitution or in any law that Delhi was the capital of India.
