The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) on Tuesday sacked nine advisers to various departments of the Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government on the grounds that their appointments were not sanctioned by the Centre.

The nine advisors, whose appointments were cancelled, included Amardeep Tiwari (media advisor to the law minister), Arunodya Prakash (media advisor to the deputy chief minister), Raghav Chadha (advisor to the finance minister), Atishi Marlena (advisor to the deputy chief minister). The order issued by the MHA stated categorically, "Services under the NCT of Delhi is a subject reserved for central government as per the Constitution Therefore, creation of posts by Delhi cabinet for accommodating these appointees is void ab-initio, being done by an agency not competent under the law to do so". Chadha is one of the closest confidants of chief minister Arvind Kejriwal. "Prime Minister Narendra Modi has chose to undermine the Delhi's education system that is why this order has been issued today", Sisodia alleged.

How Analysts Feel About Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) After Decrease in Sellers?
First Allied Advisory Service owns 86,414 shares or 0.02% of their USA portfolio. 14,855 were accumulated by Advantus Management. Apple comprises approximately 4.8% of Nexus Investment Management Inc.'s holdings, making the stock its 6th biggest holding.

The MHA, in its recommendation of April 10, clarified that the "posts" in which the appointees were officiating were not in the list of posts approved for the Ministries and Chief Minister of Delhi.

Significantly, the Centre's decision to sack the nine advisors was legal. "They can't run universities, they can't prevent rapes", said Sisodia. "Here are the terms of appointment for those who wish to see", he tweeted.

In the past couple of days we have seen how the Kathua and Unnao cases unfolded, where ministers of BJP where themselves guilty of committing heinous crimes and others supporting the culprits. "The AAP Government flouted with impunity existing rules and regulations not only in the appointment of the nine AAP supporters in the Government but also in the appointment of the 21 Parliamentary Secretaries to the ministers, and various other appointments".

A chartered accountant by profession, Chadha said he was hired by the Delhi government for a specific time period for his expertise with an aim to make "pro-people Budget". Just to satisfy their personal vendetta, they are trying to bring down Aam Aadmi Party only because they performed well in the Education and Health sector? "The appointments were made against pre-existing co-terminus posts". On March 26, the Delhi assembly passed a resolution directing the government to present a "status report" on files which were "delayed or blocked" by the office of LG Anil Baijal.
