The ongoing tussle between bureaucrats and Delhi Government headed by chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has refused to die down.

The Association of the IAS Officers of AGMUT (Arunachal, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories) Cadre continue to observe 5-minute protests as a mark of support for chief secretary Aanshu Prakash who was assaulted by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs last month. The assault allegedly took place at the behest of Kejriwal at his residence.

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 had 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 gameplan aimed to destabilize his government.

While the Delhi Police has been 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 have boycotted the official activities planned by Kejriwal and his ministers.
