Miffed over the Home Ministry's notification, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Friday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of 'trying to run the state through backdoor'.

Kejriwal came down heavily on the order and said it showed the nervousness of the BJP and the Centre over the efforts of his government against corruption. He had alleged Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung is just the face and the orders to him are coming from the Prime Minister's Office.

"BJP and the Congress want to have their own officers in Delhi and get government contracts for their own people. They want control over the transfer-posting industry," Kejriwal said, adding that the Central government has back-stabbed the city's people.
