New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS) Delhi Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia on Tuesday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi of derailing the government’s development work.
Sisodia reacted after Lt Governor Najeeb Jung suddenly transferred Delhi’s Health Secretary Tarun Seem and Public Work Department (PWD) Secretary Sarvagya Srivastava on Tuesday.
The transferred officials were involved in increasing the ‘Mohalla Clinics’ across the city as well as boosting the number of classrooms in government schools.
Sisodia said: “Modi is derailing Delhi government’s development work in the health and education sector by transferring Delhi government’s health and PWD secretaries through LG.”
Sisodia said in future Modi should be held responsible for any delay in the working of the clinics and schools.
He termed the move “a conspiracy to derail” the Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) good work.
He said: “I came to know, from reliable sources, that Modi, himself called up the LG and asked him to make the transfers.”
Sisodia said that as Tarun Seem had a medical background and Sarvagya Srivastava was an engineer so they were performing well in their respective departments.
In fact after rumours had surfaced about possible transfers Sisodia claimed he had personally requested the LG to retain them.
