A Team of Delhi’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Thursday carried out raids at the office of Delhi Commission for Women. According to ANI, the raid is being conducted after reports of alleged nepotism in the panel recruitment.
Some media reports suggested that the Congress leader Barkha Singh had filed a complaint in the ACB against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Delhi Commission for Women chief Swati Maliwal for alleged nepotism in recruitment in the panel.
According to Singh, as reported by News Nation, AAP government has hired about 85 of its party workers in breach of the rules by taking in more staff than sanctioned number of posts.
However, Maliwal denied any wrongdoing and claimed the additional hands were hired to clear backlog of cases.
The ACB reports to the central government through the office Lieutenant Governor, who has been at loggerheads with Kejriwal ever since the latter won historic mandate in February 2015.
