New Delhi:  The Delhi government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) on Tuesday resumed investigation in the Rs.100-crore transport scam even as the AAP asked its newly appointed chief to return to Delhi Police.

Reacting to the move, Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung issued a statement, citing the Justice Mukul Mudgal committee’s recommendations of not going for a high-level probe in the case.

Meanwhile, the Delhi government relieved Home Secretary Dharam Pal of his charge. The transfer order was sent to the Lt. Governor for his approval.

Sources said the move was taken in the wake of Pal notifying the appointment of M.K. Meena as the new ACB chief.

Jung on Monday appointed Meena as the head of the anti-graft wing. Meena, Joint Commissioner in Delhi Police, replaced S.S. Yadav who is additional commissioner of police.

The Aam Aadmi Party government on Tuesday asked him to return back to Delhi Police, but Meena refused.

“I am still holding charge because I have got the orders from the competent authority. We had conducted a meeting with all officers. Our action will be impartial,” he said.

In 2012, the ACB had registered a case in the alleged loss of Rs.100 crore to the Delhi government in awarding the contract of operation and maintenance of inspection and certification of CNG vehicles.

However, the then Sheila Dikshit government had denied permission to the ACB when it demanded to question certain officials.

In January 2014, the CBI initiated a preliminary inquiry in the case and was assured all help by the then Aam Aadmi Party government. But after Arvind Kejriwal resigned as chief minister in February 2014, the case got stuck again. (IANS)

The recent controversy created by the AAP’s (Aam Aadmi Party) elected MLA has shaken the whole of the administrative department. The body representing bureaucrats has come up in full force to protest against the atrocities done by AAP members.

One of the two legislators who had allegedly attacked Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, Amanatullah Khan yesterday surrendered at Jamia Nagar police station.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goon inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

Police have apprehended the second AAP MLA Prakash Jarwal on Tuesday night itself.

The assault of the government official has created a furore among fellow colleges and they have demanded an unconditional apology from Arvind Kejriwal.

Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP's goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.
Anshu Prakash alleged that he was bundled up by the AAP’s goons inside the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence on the pretext of some kind of meeting.

The crisis has led Home Minister, Rajnath Singh to intervene in this matter and hence a report is sought from Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal on the same.

The AAP is trying to paint the whole scenario in some other way by calling it a nefarious design by BJP (Bhartiya Janta Party). But it is quite evident from the facts that AAP is trying to hide its heinous face by blaming BJP for all this fiasco.

Police have confirmed the assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash. Thus, it leaves us in no doubt that AAP party members have got the thirst for power in their head and they are claiming themselves above the law and order. It is the same government which promised the Delhi people to revolutionize the whole system but the current developments are pointing the needle towards raw craving for power and money by the Arvind Kejriwal led government.
