New Delhi, Oct 27 (IANS) Delhi’s Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung on Tuesday approved S.S. Yadav’s name for the post of Delhi’s VAT Commissioner.
Yadav’s name was suggested by Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal.
Yadav, who was the CEO of Delhi Jal Board, will succeed Vijay Kumar, whose transfer to Lakshadweep by Jung was slammed by the Delhi government.
An official in Jung’s office said the Lt. Governor “has accorded approval to (the) appointment of S.S. Yadav as the VAT commissioner”.
Earlier, the Aam Aadmi Party government accused Jung of shunting out Kumar, who it said was fighting corruption.
Jung said the transfer was done at the central government’s behest.
Keshav Chandra will replace Yadav as the Delhi Jal Board CEO.
