New Delhi, Dec 29, 2023: The year 2023 was filled with continuous conflict between Delhi's AAP government, the Lt Governor, and the bureaucracy.

The AAP government briefly gained authority over Services-related matters after a Supreme Court ruling, but the balance of power quickly shifted back in favor of the Lt Governor due to legislation brought by the BJP-led Centre.

Throughout the year, tensions between the AAP government, Raj Niwas, and bureaucrats escalated.

Even Lt Governor VK Saxena, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, and Chief Secretary Naresh Kumar became involved in the war of words.

In January, Kejriwal and his ministers protested alleged obstacles in sending government school teachers to Finland for training. Kejriwal accused Saxena of interfering in the government's functioning and bypassing it in decision-making.

As the year comes to a close, the rift has widened further, with Saxena recommending a CBI inquiry into the alleged procurement and supply of "non-standard" drugs in Delhi government hospitals.

Last year, Saxena also recommended a CBI probe into an alleged excise policy scam.

The AAP government reacted strongly to the arrest of Manish Sisodia, the then deputy chief minister, in the excise "scam" by the CBI in February. They alleged a conspiracy by the BJP-led Centre and the Lt Governor to undermine their work in education, health, and other areas.

The Supreme Court's May 11 order was initially seen as a victory for the Kejriwal government, granting them control over the city's bureaucracy. However, the Centre quickly regained control through the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Ordinance.

After the implementation of the Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (Amendment) Act in August, the relationship between the elected government and the Lt Governor and officers deteriorated further.

The AAP government accused officers of obstructing their work and not attending meetings. Despite these challenges, the Delhi government achieved several milestones.

The number of mohalla clinics increased, with 70 added in 2023.

The government also inaugurated new schools and buildings and launched India's first real-time source apportionment lab for air pollution.

Overall, the year 2023 was marked by ongoing conflict and power struggles between the AAP government, the Lt Governor, and the bureaucracy in Delhi.
