New Delhi, Sept 18: It seems that the war of words between Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal refuses to die down.
In a move which could further create cracks between Kejriwal and Jung, Jung has directed all bureaucrats including IAS officers not to follow the orders of Delhi government.
Jung, in a memorandum, has said that strict action would be taken against those who fail to comply with his orders.
"Government of India has taken note of current constitutional position in Delhi and major instances of violation of the constitution, laws and rules, such as change in the pay structure of DANICS officers, the constitution of so-called Commission of Inquiry etc.
Government of India has declared these decisions of Government of NCT AAP as illegal and ab initio void," the memorandum stated.
"Should any officer choose to do so, both disciplinary action for compliance of illegal orders, and recovery of financial loss caused to the Government as a result of such action, would follow," it also stated.
