Like on the last occasion, Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao will skip the meeting of the NITI Aayog at New Delhi on Saturday but instead meet his Delhi counterpart Arvind Kejriwal who is visiting various States to mobilise support against the recent Ordinance promulgated by the Centre to create an authority to be headed by the Delhi Chief Minister for transfer and posting of Group A officials in the capital, including IAS officers.

The authority which will comprise the Chief Secretary and Home Secretary as members will make recommendations to the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi not only regarding transfer and posting but vigilance and other incidental matters regarding the officers. In case of difference of opinion, the decision of the Lieutenant Governor will be final.

BRS sources said Mr. Rao was also unlikely to attend the inauguration of the new Parliament building on Sunday.

Mr. Kejriwal in a tweet on Friday said he will be meeting Telangana Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao on Saturday in Hyderabad to seek support against unconstitutional and undemocratic Ordinance passed by BJP government against the orders of the Supreme Court. He will arrive here by a special flight, accompanied by Education Minister Atishi. He had already met West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee and former Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thakre seeking their support.

The Ordinance was issued a week after the Supreme Court handed over control of services in Delhi, excluding police, public order and land, to the elected government of the capital. The Ordinance provided for a new National Capital Civil Service Authority for transfer of and disciplinary proceedings against Group A officers from Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar, Lakshadweep, Daman and Diu and Nagar Haveli (Civil) Services.
