Delhi denial

dec2014-img-39The largest fallout of the change in dispensation at the Centre is seen in Delhi. The governance of Delhi is at a cross-roads. Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh appears to be reluctant to change the administrative machinery. BJP leaders in Delhi are also in a fix, though they are in power nobody heeds their opinion in the system. Lt Governor of Delhi Najeeb Jung and Chief Secretary DM Sapolia are holding the fort. It’s been almost a year now that the entire administration is virtually being run by the coterie of their former boss, Sheila Dikshit. The presence and influence of Sheila loyalists can be felt in every department. AGMUT and DANICS cadre officers who are posted outside Delhi are not being allowed to move in. Officers who have applied to join the Delhi government are being shunted out of Delhi. Generally, whenever there is a regime change, the administrative machinery is also reshuffled but a particular lobby of Sheila loyalists and Sapolia are not allowing the Home Ministry to touch them. The Joint Secretary (Union Territory) is regularly updating the Home Minister on the plight of AGMUT and DANICS cadre officers, but busy Rajnath Singh is not able to spare time to oil the Delhi government machinery. Everybody is waiting for the results of the Delhi Assembly elections. Maybe that will have some effect.
