Modiji hell-bent on destroying Delhi, says Kejriwal livid over transfers

Delhi CM Kejriwal
New Delhi/Nagpur:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is “hell-bent on destroying Delhi”, a furious Arvind Kejriwal charged in his tweets on Tuesday.

The Chief Minister is seething over the recent transfer of officers by Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, who represents the centre in Delhi.

Kejriwal alleged that Jung ordered the transfers despite Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia “virtually falling at the Lt Governor’s feet” and asking him not to remove officers involved in building mohalla (neighbourhood) clinics and schools.

@ArvindKejriwal tweeted, “Today, several officers transferred by LG directly. Files not even shown to CM or any minister. Is this Modi model of democracy?”

Earlier this month, the Lieutenant Governor had instructed that all transfers or postings of officers should be placed before him.Sisodia appealed to Jung that officers in charge of the Aam Aadmi Party government’s scheme to set up neighbourhood clinics and schools shouldn’t be removed.

The Lieutenant Governor said he was helpless and it was really the centre’s decision, Sisodia said later.
