The IAS Association has cleared its stand in the case of the Chief Secretary. In the pre-scheduled gathering, the association said that there will be no talks before Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal apologize. It will be interesting to see now what is the attitude of the Arvind Kejriwal government in this matter.
Officers deployed in the Delhi Secretariat after the assault by the chief secretary have adopted a tough stance. He is not participating in the meeting of any minister of Delhi Government. With this attitude, the functioning of Delhi has completely stalled. After the assault by the Chief Secretary, the officers here have been involved. They are afraid that the leader should not do the same with them.
On Friday, a meeting of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal with Delhi’s Lt Governor Anil Baijal expressed concern about the deadlock in government functioning. After meeting with LG, it was said that Delhi Government will talk to officials. In a statement issued by the government, it was said that officials should start working in general, it will be in the interest of the people of Delhi. After this, the Delhi government minister, Rajendra Pal Gautam, spoke to the officials and invited the talks to resolve the matter.
Kejriwal had entrusted his minister and MLA of Seemapuri to Rajendra Pal Gautam, who was talking to the officers and resolved the matter. Rajendra said that the accused MLAs of the alleged assault are in jail and the police is investigating this case. In this case, the law is doing its job. He said that what is the fault of the people of Delhi in this matter, why its work is affected. It was believed that the government has taken its own initiative, if the mutual trust of the government officials is strong, then he himself can meet with Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia.
BJP asks for CBI inquiry
BJP has demanded a CBI probe into the assault of Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash in the Chief Minister’s residence. He says that the Delhi government wants to ruin the Indian democratic system by chaotic behavior. Battling with the Chief Secretary is a vivid example of this. The BJP says that now the message is clear that this government will assault everyone by their officers who refuse to do any illegal activities of the government. It is expected that there has been an attempt to eradicate evidence from the spot. Therefore, CBI investigation is essential to know the real truth.
