In a series of tweets on Thursday, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia wrote that the Delhi government had put an end to the “transfer-posting industry” that was being run during the previous governments.

A day after retired and serving AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh-Goa-Mizoram-Union Territories)-cadre bureaucrats met in the light of the controversy over the powers of Lt-Governor or the Chief Minister to transfer or appoint them to a post, Sisodia tweeted, “The officers who ran the transfer-posting industry during previous governments are now motivating other officers after retirement.”

He also wrote that the AAP government was bearing the brunt of trying to curb the “transfer-posting industry” worth crores. He said that all the transfers and postings made by the Delhi government have been honest decisions and that is the reason, the AAP government was being opposed.

Amid talk of bureaucratic morale taking a beating in the ongoing turf war between the LG and the CM, Sisodia also wrote that bureaucrats were working with the Delhi government with great zeal and it was only those misusing their positions, who were, in fact, demoralised.

Taking a dig at the Centre, Sisodia also wrote, “Pakistan has hoisted its flag in Kashmir but the Centre, through the L-G, is busy usurping the right to transfer and post babus in Delhi.”

In a previous tweet, Sisodia had said, “In government, if you have to engage in corrupt activities, you won’t be interrupted not just for 15 but 50 years. But you will face difficulties if you have to carry on with honesty.”

Meanwhile, BJP’s Vijender Gupta, leader of opposition the Assembly, said that the opposition had sought the intervention of the President of India in resolving the deadlock.

        Arvind Kejriwal should either apologise to Ms Gamlin or should file a charge-sheet against her in ACB.

          is he stopping it or starting it this racket and hence insisting on only having officers that he wants? Considering that they have now occupied Shiela Dixit's bunglow and are moving in VIP cars under police protection it is clear that the earlier confidence of common man of Delhi will protect them is gone.

            Sisodia wants the sole control over the lucrative business of making money through posting / transfers of civil servants.
