“We will talk about the MHA’s guidelines that have been released, on 26th and 27th in the special session of Delhi Assembly,” Delhi’s Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said.
The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) issued the notification on Friday, saying that Lieutenant Governor Jung has primacy in postings and transfers of officers belonging to Central services.
On this, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had reacted strongly to it, saying that the NDA Government at the Centre was trying to run the national capital through the ‘backdoor’.
Kejriwal had also stated that the notification was indicative of the Bharatiya Janata Party’s (BJP) nervousness about the Aam Aadmi Party’s anti-corruption efforts.
Meanwhile, Sisodia had also criticised the notification, terming it as an attempt to “save the transfer-posting industry being run in Delhi”.
