Centre gives L-G Najeeb Jung absolute powers to appoint bureaucrats (Polity ,in News So imp for 2015 Pre )

In the midst of a raging row over his powers vis-a-vis AAP government, Delhi’s LG has been given absolute powers by the Centre in appointment of bureaucrats for which he need not “consult” the chief minister on subjects like senior staff, police and public order.
The Anti-Corruption Bureau of the Delhi government has also been barred from registering any case against officers and political functionaries of the central government.
This decision is apparently aimed at preventing the AAP government from filing cases similar to the one against former Petroleum Minister M Veerappa Moily and a few central government officials in the natural gas issue in February 2014.
