GN Bureau | June 2, 2015
Even as both the parties have approached courts for clarification on division powers, the issue of hiring of five personnel of Bihar Police in Anti Corruption Branch of Delhi government has triggered a fresh clash between the Kejriwal government and the LG.
Three inspectors and two Sub Inspectors of the Bihar Police have joined ACB which is facing manpower crunch.
However, LG’s office stated on Tuesday, “ACB Delhi being a police station functions under authority, control & supervision of LG, a position clarified by the MHA. The office of Lt. Governor has so far not received any proposal for the deputation of such personnel from outside Delhi police.”
“The matter will be duly examined as and when the LG receives formal proposal from the Vigilance department of Delhi government,” Raj Niwas said.
Delhi Police and ACB have recently come face to face after some of the former's men were arrested by the anti-graft unit for allegedly accepting bribe.
The AAP government and the Lt Governor have been involved in a public spat over his powers vis-a-vis an elected government. The Centre had on May 21 issued a notification siding with the Lt Governor.
In the notification, the Centre had given absolute powers to the LG in appointment of bureaucrats while also clarifying that he need not "consult" the chief minister on subjects like police and public order.
In a terse press note, Jung made it clear that the ACB “functions under the authority, control and supervision of the Lt Governor” and that he had not received any proposal from the Kejriwal government for deputation of officials from “outside Delhi police”.
