Delhi’s IAS association claim they are being victimised

Published

on

New Delhi, June 17 : Delhi’s IAS association on Sunday held an unprecedented press conference to counter AAP’s claim that its officers are on strike and said that they are being “targeted”and “victimised”.

“We are completely apolitical. We work with dedication with every government… The presser is very unusual, we never thought we have to do this. We are answerable to the law,” the IAS Association said.

“I would like to inform that we are not on strike. The information that IAS officers in Delhi are on strike is completely false and baseless. We are attending meetings, all departments are doing their work. We are sometimes also working on holidays,” said Manisha Saxena, IAS Association Delhi.

The officers addressed the media after Delhi government alleged that bureaucrats in the national capital have been “hindering” the work of the AAP-led government and have alleged that they have been staging a strike for the last four months.
“Let us do our work. We are feeling frightened and victimised. We are being used for completely political reasons,” said bureaucrat Varsha Joshi.

The chief minister has accused the centre and Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal of backing a four month-strike by IAS officers, who are protesting against the Kejriwal government. Kerjiwal and his ministers have sought and end to the strike as well as approval for a new doorstep delivery of services scheme.

The sit-in began on June 11 when Chief Minister went to the Raj Niwas in the evening, along with his Deputy Manish Sisodia, and two other ministers, Gopal Rai and Satyendra Jain. Mr Jain began an indefinite fast.

CPI-M General Secretary Sitaram Yechury on Sunday accused the Modi government of using the Governors office to destabilise the non-BJP state governments as well as to install BJP governments despite the saffron party not winning the mandate.

Yechury’s statement came ahead of his joining a protest march to the Prime Minister’s residence organised by the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday against the alleged high-handedness of the central government and direct interference in Delhi administration.
