IAS, DANICS officers meet Rajnath over resolution against ‘misbehaviour’ by Delhi govt

New Delhi: IAS and DANICS Officer associations, which passed a resolution last week against “misbehaviour” by Delhi government political executives, has met Union Minister Rajnath Singh and handed over the resolution to him.

“We met the Union Home Minister yesterday and handed over our resolution passed last week against ‘misbehaviour’ by political executives in the Delhi government and other issues,” a member of the associations claimed. Both the associations had expressed “anguish and pain” at the alleged “misbehaviour by political executives” and appealed to the Kejriwal government not to resort to “misdemeanour, unfounded allegations, mis-information” campaign against officers, under any circumstance, according to the resolution which was adopted jointly by the Associations of AGMUT cadre IAS and DANICS officers. Ministry of Home Affairs is the cadre-controlling authority of AGMUT cadre IAS and DANICS officers.

In the resolution, IAS officer Association and DANICS (Delhi, Andaman Nicobar Island Civil Services) officer Association had allegedly voiced against “injustices” of any kind by the political executives of Delhi government meted out to the officers working under it. Following the Associations’ move, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had alleged that IAS officers working in the Delhi government were being “threatened” and “provoked” by PMO and Lt Governor to revolt against him.

In January, all DANICS officers’ association had gone on a one-day mass leave after the city administration had suspended two of their colleagues.
