Citing instances of Lieutenant-Governor Najeeb Jung’s name being misused “to get work done in various offices/agencies”, the office of the Lieutenant-Governor had issued a memorandum to clarify that no such phone call or meeting should be entertained. The memorandum also stated that those entertaining such calls will be held liable.
The memorandum, a first of its kind order to be issued by the L-G’s office, further stated that if the request on behalf of the L-G seems genuine, it should be verified with his office first before being adhered to.
The memorandum, a copy of which was accessed by Newsline on Saturday, was issued by the private secretary to the L-G, Vishwendra, on January 10. “This office is getting information that the name of Hon’ble Lieutenant-Governor, Delhi, is being used by people to get their work done in various offices/agencies”,” it stated.
