NEW DELHI: Appointment of nine advisers to ministers in Delhi government was today cancelled on the recommendation of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA).

The letter further added that the government of Delhi has not taken the requisite prior approval of the Central government to appoint officials on these posts.
The MHA cancelled the appointments saying that 'Services' under the Govt. of NCT of Delhi is a subject reserved for the Central government as per the Constitution.
Among the nine advisers whose appointments were cancelled are Amardeep Tiwari (media adviser to law minister), Arunodya Prakash (media adviser to deputy chief minister), Raghav Chadha (adviser to finance minister), Atishi Marlena (media adviser to deputy chief minister).
However, Delhi government has denied that no prior approval was taken before making these appointments.
Following the cancellation of the posts, national spokesperson of Aam Aadmi Party, Raghav Chadha, tweeted a letter as a proof to show that he no longer holds the said post.
According to the letter, Chadha was appointed as the adviser to finance minister for less than three months, from January 15, 2016, to March 31, 2016. "Where exactly is the MHA sacking me from? Here are the terms of appointment for those who wish to see. Thanks," he tweeted.
Chadha further alleged that order to cancel the adviser's appointment is "a diversionary tactic" by MHA at the behest of BJP to distract the attention of people from the ongoing issues of rape, cash crunch, etc.
"Impressive diversionary tactics by the MHA, at the behest of BJP. To divert attention from a spate of rapes, cash crunch etc. an opportune time to rake up non-issues with AAP like retrospective sacking for a post I held for 45 days in 2016 for a paltry sum of Rs.2.50/-," he tweeted.
