New Delhi: Amid ongoing tussle over appointment of interim Chief Secretary Shakuntala Gamlin, Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today claimed that crores used to be made in the process of transferring and posting of bureaucrats before AAP govt assumed power.
He said that the AAP government in Delhi has stopped the practice of 'posting/transfer for money' and this is the reason why people are making attempts to corner the Delhi government led by Arvind Kejriwal.
"There was a proper industry which was functioning here... crores were made in transfers and postings of officers. We have stopped this practice in last three months. This is why we are facing opposition from a few," he told reports.
He further claimed that his government is acting as per the Constitution of India in case of Gamlin.
When asked about relations between all the officials and ministers, he said that relations are very cordial and constructive.
Earlier on Wednesday, Sisodia held a meeting with bureaucrats and told them that orders of the Delhi government should be followed.
It was Gamlin's appointment as interim Chief Secretary which dramatically triggered the worst confrontation between Jung and the AAP government that had stormed to power in February.
