Delhi govt cancels appointment of 9 Kejriwal's aides on MHA advice

The cancellation order was issued by the government's General Administration Department on Tuesday. "They were appointed on these plump posts carrying heavy salary, offices, houses, cars, phones and a host of other facilities as a reward of their political work", he added.

It also said the MHA's 2015 notification had clarified that "services" under the Delhi government ~ which includes creation of services/posts, co-terminus or otherwise ~ is a subject reserved for the central government as per the Constitution.

Does this move have another flip side to it?

He said Marlena, an alumnus of St Stephen's and Oxford University, was working in the field of education with Delhi government at a salary of just Re 1. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a decision to undermine the Delhi's education system that is why this order has been issued today", Sisodia alleged.

Who were the ministers whose appointments got cancelled?

Chadha also sent a rather sarcastic letter to accompany the demand draft, in which he wrote: "From 15 January, 2016, to 31 March, 2016, I was appointed as advisor to Deputy Chief Minister Shri Manish Sisodia to aid in preparation of the annual budget for the financial year 2016- 2017, owing to my qualification as a chartered accountant".

Even chief minister Arvind Kejriwal's office is facing acute shortage of bureaucrats ever since his former principal secretary, Rajendra Kumar, was arrested by the CBI.

"I was offered an honorarium of Rs 1 per month and over my time there earned a princely sum of Rs 2.50".

In a bid to sack the officials, the Centre seemed to commit a blunder.

In the past couple of days we have seen how the Kathua and Unnao cases unfolded, where ministers of BJP where themselves guilty of committing heinous crimes and others supporting the culprits. The Health Department also cancelled the appointment of a consultant.

The Delhi government said it had received a letter from the Union Home Ministry on April 10, saying that posts such as advisers and consultants to various ministries were not approved by the Centre.

Rather than addressing the issue, Sisodia indulged in rhetoric.

The powers, which Kejriwal referred to in his speech during a discussion in the State Assembly on an "Outcome Report" on the performance of the L-G's office, included the authority to take vigilance and disciplinary action against government officers.
