IAS bodies condemn manhandling of Delhi chief secy


New Delhi: Condemning the alleged manhandling of the Delhi chief secretary by a few AAP MLAs last night, two IAS bodies today Anil Baijal to lodge their protest over the matter and said the incident appears to be “pre-planned and pre-meditated”.

Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly manhandled by a few AAP MLAs at the chief minister’s residence in presence of Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia. However, the chief minister’s office dismissed the accusation as “bizarre and baseless”.

According to an official, Prakash was called by Kejriwal regarding the issue of advertisements, which were not being released. But, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) claimed that he had been called for a discussion on rations.

IAS, DANICS associations, along with the Delhi Administration Subordinate Services (DASS), alleged that the meeting was called last night to put pressure on the chief secretary to release publicity material regarding achievements of the AAP government, in violation of the Supreme court guidelines.

The meeting was devoid of any or public interest, they claimed.

“The incident which has happened at the official residence of the chief minister clearly appears to pre-planned, pre-meditated and absolutely without any provocation on the part of the chief secretary in view of the fact that the meeting was called at midnight…

“The meeting had been called to put pressure him to release publicity material regarding achievements of the government,” the associations said in a joint statement.

They stated it was a culmination of a series of incidents of officers being subjected to verbal abuse and intimidation by political authorities from time to time and tend to lead to impairment of the effective functioning of bureaucracy in free and impartial manner.

The associations have in the past, repeatedly urged the political parties to allow the officials to discharge their duties professionally, the statement said.

“The appalling and shocking physical assault meted out to the head of the administration of Delhi, in form of blows on the head, amounting to threat to life and physical safety is deplorable,” they said, adding that in public interest, the officers and staff would continue to work in their offices.

“We request for effective action to be taken against all people behind the incident,” the associations said.

By continuing to buy high ticket items from Russia, India perpetuates Russian leverage on India. Russia uses that to get even more deals linking one to the other. Weapons is not a buyers market. India has to get out of this cycle #StrategicAutonomy

Putin’s flying visit to India apart from trying to reverse India’s close ties with the US, to gauge Indian reaction, get silence if not support on Ukraine? That itself will be in Putin’s calculation to get some daylight between India & the US.

It will not be in India’s interest to stay aloof of potential Russian invasion of Ukraine. It will have a bearing on our conflict with China. And the countries opposing Russian designs are the ones India will look upto for diplomatic and material support in a war against China
