The meeting was attended by top bureaucrats, including Chief Secretary M M Kutty, and heads of departments under the Delhi government. This assumes significance as Baijal's predecessor Najeeb Jung had been at loggerheads with Arvind Kejriwal-led Delhi government on a variety of issues, including over the administrative control of the bureaucracy.
