AAP asks officers to end ‘illegal strike’

Shortly after the press conference by the IAS association, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) released a press note saying that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal would ensure the safety and security of officers.

In the note, the party also appealed to the IAS officers to end their “illegal” strike immediately and work with the elected government.

AAP sources said that the CM and some MLAs had been in communication with officers in the past month over the issue.

Informal discussions

A senior leader said informal discussions had taken place about 15 days ago where the CM had assured the safety of officers. The senior leader said that the officers had originally demanded an apology from the CM and deputy CM, but now some of the bureaucrats had understood that the apology could not be made since there was a police case involved.

“The press conference held by IAS officers serving under the Delhi government was riddled with lies, inconsistencies, and falsehoods,” added the press note.

“The most important question about whether the officers attended meetings, responded to phone calls, text messages of Ministers and the CM over the last four months was completely side-stepped,” the AAP said.
