Jt commissioner Meena told that there is no sanctioned post for him
GN Bureau | June 9, 2015
Again an official has been tossed around in the turf war being fought by lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. Earlier, a IAS official was locked out of his office for following Jung’s order.
Mukesh Meena, appointed as chief of Anti Corruption Bureau by Jung , has been told to go back to his previous post by the Delhi vigilance director.
The vigilance director has written to Meena that there is no place for him in the ACB. The letter says that there is only one post of additional commissioner of police in the ACB and that is presently occupied.
Meena has been told that there is no sanctioned post for him and hence, he must return to his position in the Delhi government. Meena held the position of joint commissioner of Delhi Police prior to this appointment.
Jung had questioned Kejriwal's decision to induct five police officers from Bihar in its elite ACB, triggering sharp reaction from the AAP government. Three inspectors and two sub-inspectors of Bihar Police had joined Delhi government's ACB after a request in this regard by the AAP government to Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's office.
Jung's office virtually rejected the appointment of the five police officials from Bihar and reaffirmed that the ACB functions under his direct authority and control.
The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi had criticised the L-G for appointing Meena accusing him of overstepping his jurisdiction.
The AAP government hit back saying the appointment is in contempt of court because the Delhi High Court had said that the ACB is under the Delhi government, not the L-G.
The Home Ministry had earlier issued a statement that lt governor is the final authority to decide on appointments to the ACB.
