What the MHA notification means for AAP


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.

Today’s gazette notification supercedes the one in 1998, issued by the then Home Minister LK Advani also says that legislative assembly of Delhi has no “executive powers” and the order of L-G will be final when it came to matters of transfers and postings. It was on the issue of appointment of an interim chief secretary Shakuntala Gamlin that the L-G office and Delhi government had a heated controversy.


  1. SHAMELESS BJP. Working 24/7 against the people of Delhi. If LG is the head, then why have elections at all? Janta WILL NOT SPARE you. WAIT FOR ELECTIONS BHARTIYA JUMLA PARTY. You don’t think of people’s good, you think of your own good. You are ready to spoil Delhi for your own good.

  2. jo-jo partiya RTI k dayare m nahi aa rahi h aur apane chunavo m anap-sanap dhan kharch ka ecject byora nahi deti h vo bharat ki janata ki dosi h. vo partya deshdrohi ghosheet karane k layak mani jani chahiye. direct aur indirect roop se vo lokatantr ki dushman h . saty aur nyay k malik ki jai ho.
