Delhi Metro panel row: After Centre opposition to AAP picks, transport dept raises red flag

The Delhi government’s move to nominate political faces to the DMRC board is facing resistance not just from the Centre but from within as well, with the Transport Department stressing that only the Lt-Governor can clear such appointments. Advertising It is learnt that Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot has received multiple communications from the highest levels of the department, suggesting that only the L-G is authorized to nominate members to the DMRC board on the state government’s behalf.

However, Gahlot has dismissed the department’s contention, asserting that he has the final say over the nominations by virtue of his office. All Delhi government ministers recently issued circulars reiterating that the L-G’s concurrence or approval is needed only on subjects that concern police, public order, and land. The DMRC board, which can have a maximum of 17 members, is the highest decision-making body of the corporation.
