Reacting to the MHA’s notification to Delhi government, BJP state unit president Satish Upadhyay said that his party had no role in the entire issue.
He said, “Kejriwal should have worked for people rather than indulging in confrontational politics.”
The Ministry of Home Affairs amended a 1998 notification today and said that according to the Constitution L-G was the “administrative head” of the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
The notification also made it clear that since bureaucrats and police officers working in the Delhi government belong to central cadres like AGMU, IPS, DANICS and DANIPS, the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) of Delhi government had no jurisdiction on them. This notification comes as a severe blow to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s anti-corruption drive, since they will no longer be able to book these officials facing charges of corruption.
