The demand draft that was addressed to MHA. AAP spokesperson Raghav Chadha on Wednesday said he had written a letter to the Ministry of Home Affairs with an enclosed Demand Draft of Rs 2.50.
The move follows the cancellation of his appointment by the Delhi government's general administration department following a directive by the MHA on Tuesday.
In Twitter, Chadha said, "My letter to Hon'ble Minister of Home Affairs regarding retrospective sacking of 9 advisors, including me. Enclosed demand draft in favour of Ministry of Home Affairs as refund of remuneration of Rs.2.50/- received during my tenure."
Chadha was appointed as advisor to Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia between January 15, 2016 and March 31, 2016 to aid in preparation of the annual budget for the financial year 2016-17, the letter says. Chadha is a trained chartered accountant.
"I was offered an honorarium of Re 1 per month, and over my time there I earned a princely sum of Rs 2.50. In light of the order issued yesterday on the directions by the MHA declaring my appointment as void, I accept my retrospective sacking from the position held for a period of 75 days, two years ago," the leter adds.
Chadha has also accused the bureaucracy of being 'hand and glove' with the BJP. "I'm afraid I was one of those foolhardy individuals who thought they brought value to the table, but since then have realised the error of my ways," the letter says.
He also lashed out at the positions given to certain individuals and named BJP leaders Shazia Ilmi and Sambit Patra in his letter. "The latest example of the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh giving the rank of Minister of State to 'Computer Baba' and four other alleged religious leaders leads me to believe that perhaps Delhi government would have done better to extend patronage to self-proclaimed religious instead of finest domain experts," Chadha lashed out.
On Tuesday, the Delhi government's general administration department (GAD) on Tuesday cancelled the appointments of nine party members working as advisors and consultants to the Delhi cabinet.
The HC has allowed pleas from three private discoms which had challenged the AAP government's decision to get their accounts audited by the CAG.
In August, in an indictment of the three private power distribution companies in the national capital, the CAG had found them inflating dues from consumers to the tune of a whopping Rs 8,000 crore besides a range of other irregularities including suppressing revenue.
In its draft report into financial condition of the three private companies, the CAG said the firms BSES Yamuna Power Ltd (BYPL) and BSES Rajdhani Power Ltd (BRPL) backed by Reliance Infra and Tata Power Delhi Distribution Ltd inflated their previously-incurred losses.
