The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday slammed Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for ‘hiring’ police officers from Bihar, noting that such a decision cannot be made without the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) sanctioning the move.
“I feel that Arvind Kejriwal and his party, instead of working for the development of the city, have gotten into the habit of finding new controversies every day. Right now, the courts are still deliberating on under whose jurisdiction the Anti-Corruption Bureau shall come. Has he kept the Home Ministry or the LG in confidence while making the decision?” said BJP leader Harish Khurana.

“The real question is till when you will run the city by being stubborn. As far as I am aware, you cannot call a deputation of police officers without the MHA sanctioning it,” he added.
The Delhi government has decided to ‘hire’ police officers from Bihar for its Anti-Corruption Bureau, with reports stating that one Deputy Superintendent of Police and five inspectors and sub-inspectors will be joining the body soon.
