The Shunglu Committee reports that were revealed by the congress leader has pointed out “gross abuse of power” by the Arvind Kejriwal government. The 3 member committee has flagged decisions including the allotment of land to the AAP for its party office, the appointment of Minister Satyendra Jain’s daughter as “mission director” of Delhi State Health Mission and a number of purported AAP functionaries as “advisors”. The report observes that the genesis of the conflict lay in an April 2015 order issued by Kejriwal to all the departments. It directed officers to take decisions without consulting the Lt Governor on all subjects that have been transferred to the Delhi Assembly under Article 239AA(3)a of the Indian Constitution.

The Shunglu Committee was formed by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung in August 2016 and it is headed by former Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) VK Shunglu. The committee also consists of former Chief Election Commissioner N Gopalaswami and former Chief Vigilance Commissioner Pradeep Kumar, according to reports.
