LG Najeeb Jung approves AAP backed Swati Maliwal's appointment as DCW Chief

New Delhi: After cancelling AAP government's appointee Swati Maliwal's appointment as Delhi Commission for Women (DCW) Chief, Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung on Monday gave her green signal to run the commission.

Jung had earlier rejected her appointment, claiming that his approval had not been sought on the issue.

The LG, who has been locked in a tussle with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over appointment and transfer of senior bureaucrats, had declared the appointment of Maliwal as “ultra vires” of the rules.

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Swati Maliwal had earlier expressed disappointment at the cancellation of her appointment as DCW chief by the Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, adding that the 'roadblock' would not inhibit her from putting an end to the 'kitty party' culture of DCW.
