Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, after casting aspersions on the character of his officials, has now started throwing mud at the office of lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung and prime minister Narendra Modi.

Reacting to a ministry of home affairs notification issued on Friday morning, backing the LG on transfer postings of bureaucrats, Kejriwal said that the Centre wanted to place its own people in Delhi.

"The transfer-posting industry is worth crores of rupees. In the three months that we have been in power, we have closed down this industry. The LG has never inquired about the state of water and power supply but keeps asking for transfer and postings to be put in his charge. There is something very fishy about this," he said.

Kejriwal also accused Modi of trying to rule Delhi through the lieutenant governor.

Kejriwal likened the PM to the Queen of England when India was under British rule. The real power centre was the Queen, like the PM is. The LG is like the viceroy, only a face.

 Kejriwal said that he had sought the opinion of experts on the issue after which the government would explore the options available to it.

The MHA notification prohibits the Delhi anti-corruption branch from taking action against central officers, including Delhi Police. Kejriwal said that there is something wrong in trying to defend someone who has corruption charges against him/her.

"The Centre wants us to turn away if we find a central government employee indulging in corruption," he said.

Kejriwal on Jung and BJP:

  • Modi government has completed one year and they have given this notification to the people of Delhi as a gift.
     
  • We want to ask Narendra Modi government who are they trying to save.
     
  • Probably the AAP government is one of the cleanest governments Delhi has ever seen.
     
  • They are rattled by the action taken by us against corrupt officers.
     
  • The LG has never asked about water or electricity, all they are interested in is transfer posting.
     
  • They are saying that we can't take any action against any corrupt official in the central government.
     
  • The BJP and Congress want to have their own officers in Delhi and get government contracts for their own people.
     
  • We've cracked down on the transfer-posting industry. Earlier there was a lot of money changing hands for transfers but now that has ended under AAP.
     
  • LG is just the face. Jung has no control, the orders come from the top. He is the viceroy and the PMO is London. All orders come from the PMO
