Kejriwal also wrote that the Centre was trying to run the government through Lt Governor and urged the government to refrain from doing so. He said that 'Delhi government should be allowed to work independently as per the Constitution.'

Jung, on the other hand, said that he had the power to appoint and transfer bureaucrats and that none of the actions taken by him were 'unconstitutional.'

Meanwhile, Congress said that Kejriwal should stop his 'dharna mindset.' "Delhi is a Union Territory and CM should know that he doesn't have all the powers," said  Congress leader Ajay Maken.

This comes a day after both Kejriwal and Jung met President Pranab Mukherjee separately over the issue.
