Taking a swipe at the IAS officers who went on mass leave today, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that it is good that these officers have gone on mass leave. In his tweet he said, “People will be “very happy if these officers go on long leave. Govt is ready to give paid leave. Governance will become honest, smooth and efficient.”
He added, “DANICS and IAS associations in Delhi have become full fledged B teams of BJP.”
He also attacked L-G Najeeb Jung for supporting Centre in this conspiracy. he said, “LG personally attended DANICS association meeting yesterday through speaker phone. L-G in turn was in touch with Nripendra Misra in PMO.”
He added, “Time has come to replace bureaucrats with professionals and sector experts. Infuse fresh energy and ideas in governance.”
However, LG House has rubbished the allegations made by Deputy CM Manish Sisodia and CM Arvind Kejriwal. LG Office clarified that he is on leave and is not even in Delhi, therefore question does not arise to personal present in any DANICS official meeting.
The Delhi government has suspended two senior officers of its Home Department for refusing to sign on a Cabinet decision file, following which around 200 DANICS-cadre officers have threatened to go on mass leave on Thursday in solidarity with their colleagues.
The Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP government termed it as a “conspiracy” after an overwhelming majority of Delhi government officials reportedly decided not to turn up for work today after the government suspended two senior civil service officers of the Home Department on Wednesday.
Speaking on the controversy, Delhi Health Minister Satyendra Jain said he has no idea about the strike.”I have no information of any strike,” Jain said today.
“Suspension is a administration matter and a cabinet decision was failed to be implemented,” he added.
