Earlier this month, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, who represents the centre in Delhi, had instructed that all transfers or postings of officers should be placed before him. CM Kejriwal alleged that LG Jung ordered the transfers despite Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia "virtually falling at the Lt Governor's feet" and asking him not to remove officers involved in building mohalla clinics and schools.

DCM Sisodia appealed to LG Jung that officers-in-charge of the Aam Aadmi Party government's scheme to set up neighbourhood clinics and schools shouldn't be removed. The Lieutenant Governor said he was helpless and it was really the centre's decision, DCM said later.

There has been a constant tussle between the AAP government and the Lieutenant Governor since the former came to power in Delhi. Recently, the court had ruled that the Lieutenant Governor is the administrative head of Delhi and does not need to act on the advice of the state government.
