The home ministry on Thursday rejected the Delhi government’s order of transferring Home Secretary Dharam Pal, but Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal maintained that the transfer was valid.


The AAP government transferred Dharam Pal for signing a notification that appointed Delhi Police Joint Commissioner M.K. Meena as the chief of the government’s Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB), official sources said. The home ministry said the Aam Aadmi Party government, which does not control Delhi Police, did not have the jurisdiction to remove Dharam Pal from the post.

But Kejriwal has told the home ministry that the transfer of officials was in the domain of the Delhi government. The sources told IANS that Kejriwal, in a communication to the ministry, had cited constitutional rules to back his claim. Meena was appointed the new ACB chief by Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung superseding Kejriwal’s handpicked department chief, S.S. Yadav.

The Delhi government has since given the post of home secretary to senior bureaucrat Rajendra Kumar. The conflict over who controls the bureaucracy in Delhi has been a major source of confrontation between the AAP government and the Lt. governor. The AAP government has told Meena to return to Delhi Police but he has refused to do so.

In fact, this symbol is considered very significant in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism. But, at the same time, it has become one of the most misunderstood religious symbols and has been globally banned in many countries.

The reason why the symbol of Swastika is banned in many countries is because of its association with Adolf Hitler's extreme political ideology, Nazism, as Swastika as its official symbol.

India celebrated a historic day on August 7, as 23-year-old Neeraj Chopra became the first Indian to win an Olympic gold medal in athletics. In the men's javelin throw event, he achieved his greatest triumph, throwing the javelin 87.58 meters on his second try.

Neeraj Chopra was born on December 24, 1997, in Khandra village in Haryana's Panipat district. He grew up in a Haryanavi family of farmers. He is the brother of two sisters. He graduated from Dayanand Anglo-Vedic College in Chandigarh and is now enrolled in Lovely Professional University in Jalandhar, Punjab, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree. Chopra was bullied due to his obesity as a kid, which prompted his father to enroll him in a nearby gym. He then joined a gym in Panipat, where Jaiveer Choudhary, a javelin thrower, noticed his potential and coached him. When the 13-year-old Chopra finished training under Jaiveer for a year, he was enrolled at the Tau Devi Lal Sports Complex in Panchkula, where he began training under coach Naseem Ahmed.
