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.

            Mr Sisodia ,people of this country are not so credulous to believe you, if you have any proof with you take action against those involved in that industry. You are not an activist now, but a minister, action, not words that what is needed. Kejri said the acting chief secretary gamling is an agent of corporate, she worked for them while she was power secretary in delhi government. If so why didn't he take action against her?While out of power he used level charges against so many leaders, but didn't follow up.Now kejri is in power, instead of levelling charges, he should take action against officers who are indulged unlawful activities. Action that is what the people are expecting

              In the Government of India, the Ministries/Departments issue comfort letter to the Banks for providing working capital faciities to the PSUs, in the event the bank guarantee file pending in the Ministry of Finance. Madame Gamlin would not have issued the comfort letter to the private discoms (in which the Government has also got equity) without the approval of the competent authority. AAP instead of governing in a seasoned manner have created a big issue out of a non-issue. Very soon the city of Delhi is going grop in dark and will be thirsty for water. Anything free of cost or subsidy for long looms a crash in the end. My no action is being taken by the AAP against the fraud LLB certificate of the Minister.

                This is the proof if the voters are making wrong decision. The AAP is a group not worth anything. They have in mind as former NGO's to rule Hindustan and turn it into a chaos. Before they can do that, throw them out of office. They can be blamed for killing a farmer from Rajastan and the CM is using his own daughter as pawn. These persons do not know what responsibility is.
