In a sharp counter-attack, Sisodia alleged that bureaucrats who were running "transfer-posting industry" in the past governments are talking about "motivating" IAS officers after retirement and added that only officials who "misuse" their position are demoralised.

"It is very interesting. In Delhi, 'transfer-posting' is a big industry and we have stopped it in last three months. All the transfers we have done are on the basis of eligibility and have been carried out with full honesty. This is why people are opposing us. Crores (of rupees) were made through 'transfer-posting industry' in Delhi," Sisodia told reporters.

Sisodia's statement came a day after over 100 serving and retired IAS officials of the AGMUT (Arunachal Pradesh-Goa- Mizoram-Union Territories) cadre expressed "anguish" over the way senior officials are being treated in the ongoing tussle between the AAP government and Lt Governor Najeeb Jung over appointment of officials.
