Modi wants to destroy Delhi: Kejriwaltext_fields
New Delhi: Upset after two key bureaucrats in Delhi were transferred, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was "hell bent" on "destroying" the capital through the Lt Governor.
Kejriwal reacted after Lt Governor Najeeb Jung suddenly transferred Delhi's Health Secretary Tarun Sen and PWD Secretary Sarvagya Srivastava on Tuesday.
The transferred officials were looking after the work of building Mohalla Clinics across the city as well as the job of building classrooms in government schools.
"Today, several officers transferred by LG directly. Files not even shown to CM or any minister. Is this Modi model of democracy?" Kejriwal tweeted.
"Modiji is hell bent on destroying Delhi through LG," he added.
He added that Jung had rejected Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia's multiple requests not to transfer these officials till March 31.
Health and PWD Minister Satyendra Jain told the media separately: "LG is hell bent on stopping every work of the Delhi government.
"We had requested him not to transfer the two secretaries till March 31 as they were involved in developing Mohalla Clinics and classrooms in schools.
"They were doing good work but to no avail," Jain told the media here.
