AAP raises transfer of VAT commissioner with Rajnath Singh

New Delhi: Delhi government today took up with Union Home MinisterRajnath Singh its demand for an inquiry into the transfer of VAT Commissioner Vijay Kumar as it alleged that Lt Governor Najeeb Jung did not consult the Centre before effecting the move.

AAP leaders Ashutosh, Sanjay Singh and Dilip Pandey met the Home Minister in North Block for around 30 minutes and apprised him of the development that has opened a new flashpoint between the Arvind Kejriwal government and the Centre.

"Why was such an honest officer transferred within a week of him swooping down on a big hawala racket? Why did the LG not consult the state government or even the Centre?" Ashutosh asked.
