“We told the President that LG sir is trying to run the Delhi Govt on his own terms. He is directly issuing instructions to officers bypassing CM and Council of Ministers,” complained Sisodia.

Sisodia blamed L-G for interfering in the appointment of secretaries as well.

“Despite of our disapproval, L-G insisted on appointment of Acting Chief Secretary. We later approved it & now Shakuntala ji working as acting Chief Secy, but now he is (LG) interfering in appointment of Secretaries,” added Sisodia.
