MHA cancels Delhi govt’s order to remove Home Secy Dharam Pal

MHA Home Ministry

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.
