"Arvind Kejriwal Sir, the DCP, the ACP and the doctor are harassing me".

The Delhi High Court on Monday asked Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal why he could not apologise to a constable for referring to the police as "thulla" - a Hindi slang for policemen - when he has been tendering apologies to others to have defamation cases against him quashed, PTI reported. According to an order issued by General Administration Department of the Delhi government, the MHA had written in its letter that these posts on which the appointees are officiating are not in the list of posts approved for the ministers and the chief minister.

"No prior approval of the central government has been taken for creation of said posts on which these persons have been appointed on the co-terminus basis", the order stated.

Dubbing Centre's move a conspiracy against AAP, Deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia said, "In their hurry to sack our advisors, Modi government did not even check their facts". Four of the nine have already left long time back.

Mr Chadha took to Twitter, saying that his appointment was for a period two months and a half in 2016 to help prepare the Annual Budget, at a token salary of Re 1 a month.

These advisors include Atishi Marlena, Raghav Chadha, Arunoday Prakash, Amar Deep Tiwari, Prashant Saxena, Samir Malhotra. "Here are the terms of appointment for those who wish to see", he tweeted. Raghav Chadha took Re 1 per month as salary from the Delhi government. He wrote, "Where exactly is the MHA sacking me from? Since the creation of these posts and subsequent appointments on these posts are not valid, all previous orders regarding creation of these posts and appointments made against them are hereby cancelled", the order read.

Opposing the Chief Minister's plea, the constable in his reply, filed through advocate L N Rao, had alleged that Kejriwal had "crossed all limits of decency" by using the insulting word "thulla" for a policemen in an interview to a news channel. The court scheduled the next hearing for May 29.
