The Central Government’s notification giving Delhi’s Lieutenant Governor, Najeeb Jung, the final say in posting and transfer of Delhi government bureaucrats is “illegal and unconstitutional,” said the former solicitor general Gopal Subramanium.

As per the report of IANS, Subramanium said that the central government has no right to direct the Lt. Governor in posting and transfer of the government officials.

After Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal sought the former solicitor general’s opinion on the ongoing tussle, Subramanium said, “It singularly lacks propriety when the president is still seized with the question.”

“It is illegal and unconstitutional; and presumably, it has been issued without the requisite presidential approval,” he added.

On Thursday, the Home Ministry issued a notification saying that public order, land, police and services will be under the purview of the Lt. Governor.

The order was issued yesterday on the note of an ongoing tussle between the state government and Lt. Governor.

However, both the parties have approached the president to solve this commotion.
