New Delhi: The AAP government in Tuesday moved a resolution at a special session of the Delhi Assembly against the Centre's notification giving absolute powers to the Lt Governor on transfer and postings of senior bureaucrats and restricting the Anti-Corruption Bureau from probing central government employees.

Moving the resolution, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said issuance of the notification was an "insult" to the "biggest mandate" the people of Delhi had given in the assembly polls.

Alleging that the notification was in violation of the Constitution, he said government has presented the resolution before the House as attempts are being made to "curb rights" of a democratically-elected government.

"Tomorrow the central government can say that you don't have control over the sources of water so you can't supply water to the city," Sisodia said, adding "The issuance of the notification is an insult to the biggest mandate of Delhi's people."

In the notification, the Centre gave absolute powers to the LG in appointment of bureaucrats while also clarifying that he need not "consult" the chief minister on subjects like police and public order.

The ACB of the Delhi government has also been barred from registering any case against officers and political functionaries of the central government.

However, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday ruled that the ACB has authority to probe central government officials, including Delhi Police personnel.

"Delhi was plagued by corruption. People have given us a massive mandate to run the government. This government has taken corruption head on and achieved unprecedented success. The Centre is trying to thwart Delhi government's attempts. The ACB has done unprecedented work in the last 100 days despite several odds," Sisodia said.
