Arvind Kejriwal Government Finds a Way to Sideline An Anti-Graft Chief It Didn't Want ,news today,1 july 2015

NEW DELHI:  Despite a setback in court, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is apparently unwilling to accept the Lieutenant Governor's choice for head of the capital's anti-corruption agency.
On Monday, the Delhi High Court said that Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung's nominee MK Meena, a senior police officer, would remain chief of the Anti-Corruption Bureau. The court rejected the Kejriwal government's appeal to stop Mr Meena from entering his office. Mr Kejriwal had earlier picked SS Yadav to lead the bureau, which investigates complaints of graft among government officers.
Sources say the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government has found a way to sideline Mr Meena with an order on "work allocation" for the anti-corruption bureau, which effectively has two heads because of the clash between Mr Kejriwal and the Lieutenant Governor.
The order says that Mr Meena will handle only cases linked to those facing trials and "training cases" Mr Kejriwal's nominee SS Yadav, will, however, manage administration and investigation cases.
The order is apparently Mr Kejriwal's solution to the "crisis" that he referred to on Tuesday in the assembly. "The Centre has us in a jam...Today, the Delhi government has two home secretaries, two SHOs, two heads of the Anti-Corruption Branch," he had said.
Since his election, Mr Kejriwal has accused the central government of using the Lieutenant Governor - who represents the Centre - to run Delhi by proxy. The government challenged the Centre's notification that said Mr Jung alone has the right to decide the offices of bureaucrats.
