Kejriwal’s coterie

Who runs the Delhi Government headed by Arvind Kejriwal? Of course, Kejriwal himself. But he is running it in a different style compared to other Chief Ministers who run their states with favourite bureaucrats. Kejriwal has evolved a new strategy for Delhi, and senior IAS officers are not amused by the way the government is functioning. Most of the senior IAS officers have been sidelined in Kejriwal’s new system. It appears that he has posted DANICS (Delhi Andaman Nicobar Islands Civil Services) officers in non-core ministries and departments.
