“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.

    Who should take decisions in Delhi and who will be held responsible for such decisions? An appointed LG or an elected government? Modi is waging a proxy war in Delhi to discredit the AAP government who decimated the BJP in elections.

        Guv Jung/ Modi PM are culprits for not let Democracy work in Delhi territory. What if President Pranab behaves similarly with PM Modi, in all matters of governance. Jung must be sacked. Police must be under elected government of state. is anyone in India to vouch for integrity of police or ant state machinery?

          AAP is a party of OUTLAWS. They do not believe in any rule and consution. They feel shy to toe protocols and then cry they have been denied to work. Kejri feels in Delhi only Jhuggi dwellers and Auto rickshaw drivers live and whatever he will say every one will believe blindly. He is behaving like a clown.
