"The BJP through LG of Delhi has attempted a coup against the democratically elected government of Delhi with highest ever mandate in the history of the state. This is for the first that LG is issuing direct instruction to officers, bypassing the Chief Minister and council of ministers," Manish Sisodia, who also holds charge of Services department, told reporters.

On Friday, Lt Governor Najeeb Jung gave the additional charge of Chief Secretary to Gamlin, a 1984-batch IAS officer, hours after she wrote a scathing letter to Jung claiming that she was pressurised by a senior bureaucrat in CM's office not to be in race for the post due to her alleged proximity to BSES discoms.
