Lieutenant Governor Of Delhi, Anil Baijal has ordered a shutdown of the ‘spy unit’ that was set up by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal. According to a Times Now report, several documents were found about the CM’s private spy service, which was unknown to the Delhi L-G. According to the documents, CM Kejriwal had constituted a feedback unit by using Rs 50,000 from the public exchequer to spy on the ‘aam aadmi’ of the state. The report further stated that the Aam Aadmi Party government conducted only one sting operation, whose details were kept away even from the Vigilance department. The AAP chief has reportedly kept the feedback unit a secret, even from the Delhi Police.
