The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) cancelled Delhi government’s order to remove Home Secretary Dharam Pal (IAS:1998:UT).
The MHA has endorsed Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on the matter, who had earlier taken a
view that order regarding transfer of home secretary can be issued by the L-G and MHA and not
the Delhi government.
Jung had appointed M K Meena on Monday superseding Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s hand-picked
chief SS Yadav. The AAP government had reacted sharply to the decision.
