Interacting with the media post the notification from the MHA on Gamlin row, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal said that his “jung” (fight) was not against any individual but with corruption.
The CM said, “Kejriwal ki jung sahab se koi jung nahi hai, humari ladai bhrashtachaar se hai.”
Kejriwal also stated that LG Jung was merely a face and the actual orders come from higher authorities that he is obliged to undertake.
“Har cheez ka upar se order aata hai, Jung sahab toh bas chehra hai”, he added.
Ministry of Home Affairs amended a 1998 notification on Friday and said that according to the Constitution L-G was the “administrative head” of the NCT of Delhi.
The notification also clarified 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 will deal a severe blow to Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government’s anti-corruption drive, since they will no longer be able to book these officials.
