Candlelight march at Rajghat today against ‘assault’ on Delhi Chief Secretary by AAP MLAs


In the wake of alleged attack on the Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by Aam Aadmi Party lawmakers, the Delhi Administrative Subordinate Services President DN Singh has announced that they would not resume work until the action is taken against the AAP MLAs.

He also informed the media that they will take out a candlelight march at Rajghat in protest today at 6.30 pm.

“Till action is not taken we are not going to resume work. Today we will take out a candle march at Rajghat in protest. Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said he has asked for a report,” he told media.

Talking about the alleged assault, the Home Minister said that the MHA has sought a report on the incident from the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi.

The delegation of IAS DANICS and Subordinate Services of Delhi Government met Rajnath Singh today and apprised him of the prevailing situation.

Meanwhile, the IAS Association Secretary Manisha Saxena on Tuesday said that the manhandling of the Chief Secretary is a “planned criminal conspiracy”.

According to media reports, the Indian Administrative Service officers worked today with a black band as a mark of protest.

The Delhi government spokesperson Nagendar Sharma denied the allegation saying the Chief Secretary was making false accusation at the behest of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Sharma said the meeting at Kejriwal’s residence was on the “faulty implementation” of Aadhaar that “deprived about 2.5 lakh families of ration”.

He said the Chief Secretary had refused to answer questions saying he was not answerable to MLAs or the Chief Minister but only to the Lt. Governor.

“He even used bad language against some MLAs and left without answering any questions,” the spokesman said.

“Moreover, it is false information that the meeting and the argument was about TV ads. The entire discussion was on how large number of families were not getting ration,” Sharma said in a statement.
