Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal backs Mamata Banerjee over IPS officer row; condemns Centre's interference

A massive face-off has brewed between the Centre and the West Bengal government over the IPS officer row.
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal backed the Mamata Banerjee government for standing against the central government's decision to summon three serving IPS officers from West Bengal on central deputation. Taking to Twitter, Kejriwal said that the move was an 'assault on federalism'.

"I condemn the Centre’s blatant interference in the Bengal administration. Encroaching on the rights of states by attempting to transfer police officers to Centre just before elections, is an assault on federalism and an attempt to destabilize", he tweeted.
