  • In a fresh confrontation, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday accused Lieutenant Governor (LG) Najeeb Jung of snooping on him and his cabinet ministers and sending his government’s “secret information” to the Prime Minister’s Office – a charge rejected by the LG’s secretariat.
  • Kejriwal’s attack on Jung came after a letter written by the LG to the Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary Nripendra Mishra in February on the working of a bureaucrat in the Delhi Home Minister’s office found its way to media.
  • In the letter, Jung had said that an officer, SK Nagarwal, belonging to Indian Railway Service of Engineers (IRSE), was found working with Delhi’s Home Minister while on study leave from the Railways.
