Delhi Chief Secretary Urges Kejriwal to Maintain Decorum
Although IAS officers have been demanding an apology from Kejriwal, he is so arrogant that he has not shown any regret for the attack that Aanshu Prakash has alleged in his police complaint.

The chief secretary of Delhi Government Aanshu Prakash today sent a letter to chief minister Arvind Kejriwal in which he has specified a slew of conditions for attending a meeting with the ministers.
A meeting of the Council of Ministers is scheduled today at 3:00 p.m. to discuss the dates for the Budget Session of Delhi Assembly.
In his letter Aanshu Prakash has said that he will be attending the meeting with his colleague officers with the assumption that Kejriwal will ensure that there will be no physical attack or verbal assault on officers.

Aanshu Prakash also urged Kejriwal to maintain proper decorum in the meeting and protect the dignity of officers.
The chief secretary is particularly apprehensive because politicians in Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) are mostly uneducated goons. Last week, Aanshu Prakash had filed a police complaint alleging that a couple of AAP MLAs had beaten him at the behest of Kejriwal.
While the Delhi Police is investigating the case, the Lt. Governor (LG) of Delhi Anil Baijal has warned Kejriwal that he will not tolerate violence by AAP politicians.
Baijal has advised Kejriwal’s government to restore trust in bureaucracy as almost all the bureaucrats had boycotted the official activities planned by Kejriwal and his ministers.

Although the IAS officers have been demanding an apology from Kejriwal, he is so arrogant that he has not shown any regret for the attack that Aanshu Prakash has alleged in his police complaint.
Rather, Kejriwal has further threatened the bureaucrats by saying that if they did not obey his orders, he will take stern action against them. “I will not tolerate politics by bureaucrats,” Kejriwal said, assuming that officers’ protest is part of a larger political game plan to destabilize his government.
Meanwhile, in an ongoing RMN Poll given below, a whopping 77% people say they are not satisfied with Kejriwal’s AAP government in Delhi and only 12% are satisfied.
