Asking the central government to immediately relieve Sanjiv Chaturvedi from his service as deputy secretary, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has written a letter to centre where he also mentioned that Chaturvedi  is required to work as officer on special duty (OSD) in chief minister's office.

 
The letter addressed to union minister for Environment, Forest and Climate Change Prakash Javadekar says, “The services of Sanjiv Chaturvedi, who is presently posted as deputy secretary, AIIMS, New Delhi on central deputation, are urgently required to work as officer on special duty (OSD) in the Delhi CMO office... I would be highly obliged if you could kindly personally look into the matter and get the requisite orders issued at the earliest.”

In August 2014, Chaturvedi was removed as chief vigilance officer (CVO) at AIIMS. The then union health minister Dr Harsh Vardhan said that he was not eligible for the post and he was assigned to the post without the approval of Central Vigilance Commission (CVC).

Chaturvedi got the support of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and several faculty members and researchers of AIIMS who had written to the prime minister demanding his reinstatement.

The Delhi government has also issued ban on the termination of services of contractual employees till further orders.
