“The government knew that the L-G is the appointing authority for all such posts in Delhi, including the DCW chairperson. In January 2014, the then Kejriwal-led government had sent the file on the appointment of the DCW chairperson to the L-G, recommending Pushpa Maitre’s name. But now, in July 2015, Kejriwal… took the law into his hands. Violating constitutional procedure, he made a government official issue the orders appointing Maliwal as DCW chairperson,” Upadhyay said.
