Kejriwal came hard down on the order and said it showed the nervousness of the BJP and the Centre over the efforts of his government against corruption. He alleged Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung is just the face and the orders to him are coming from the Prime Minister's Office. "Pre-independence, Queen of England used to send notifications to the viceroy here. Now, Jung sahab is the viceroy and the PMO is London," he said.

Kejriwal said his government is taking views of constitutional experts on the notification and a decision will be taken soon. Accompanied by his deputy Manish Sisodia, the Chief Minister alleged that money was changing hands for transfers earlier but it has ended under the AAP government.

He also alleged that the Congress and the BJP failed to get contracts in Delhi and went to the PMO. "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.

The Home Ministry notification came after days of intense wrangling between the AAP government and Jung over transfer and posting of senior officials.
