Kejriwal's salvo at the Modi government came a day after Gamlin took over as the acting Chief Secretary of the city government at the instruction of Lt Governor Najeeb Jung whom the Chief Minister accused of rendering the elected government ineffective.
    
Speaking at a convention of auto-rickshaw drivers in North Delhi's Burari, Kejriwal alleged that Gamlin wanted to trick the government into signing documents which would give Rs 11,000 crore to power firms which she allegedly favoured.
    
"When our government was formed, she came to our power minister to get a letter signed saying that Reliance-owned power companies have applied for a loan of Rs 11,000 crore. She wanted the minister to sign the document and said it was just a formality," he said, adding, "When our minister got this letter checked, it turned out to be a guarantee letter. If Reliance-owned power companies failed to pay the loan, the burden would come on the people and the rates in Delhi would have increased two-three fold."

The Chief Minister said his government would ensure that every file to Gamlin's office over the next 10 days goes through him.
    
Despite Kejriwal's strong opposition, Jung had appointed her to the post on Friday. On Saturday, the Chief Minister had asked her not to take charge of the post but she ignored his directive and followed the LG's order.

"We opposed the appointment of Chief Secretary (Gamlin), but Modi's government appointed her as CS. We have been struggling for last four days, but Modi government wants to make Delhi government fail," Delhi CM alleged.
