A case was recently registered against Pushpa and some of her family members for alleged sexual harassment of their maids in 2001. The resolution said that until the formal election process was completed, she would hold all powers that came with the post.

Anil Baijal was a 1969 Indian Administrative Service (IAS) Officer, who had served as the Union Home Secretary in the government of Atal Bihari Vajpayee in the year 2004.

"Delhi is a megapolis with problems like women's safety, law and order, population, infrastructure, civic agencies and congestion. I hope that this work will be expedited", Kejriwal said at an event at Delhi Assembly complex later in the day. He succeeds Najeeb Jung, who resigned earlier this week. "We will sit and talk and you will come to know whether relations have improved or not".

U.S. judge Richard Gergel instructed Roof against acting as his own lawyer, telling him: "That's your decision". Gergel responded he will give Roof until the start of proceedings to change his mind about using counsel.

He was also on the executive council of the think-tank Vivekananda International Foundation, several of whose former members, including National Security Advisor Ajit Doval, have been appointed to senior positions by PM Modi's government.

Jung had submitted his resignation on December 22, ending a almost three-and-half-year-long eventful tenure, mostly marked by bitter confrontation with Aam Aadmi Party (AAP)-led Delhi government. Jung also thanked Kejriwal in his statement.
