Delhi’s officers are strike today and Satyendra jain says govt work will not be affected as system is online
GN Bureau | December 31, 2015
The Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi was born out of agitation path. Now, the AAP minister reacts in a repulsive manner to the agitation of the bureaucrats over legitimate grievances. Also does Delhi home minister Satyendra Jain wants to run the government with the help of robots? All system pertaining to governance is based online and work will not be affected, Jain has said.
Delhi government bureaucrats Thursday went on mass leave to protest against the suspension of two DANICS-cadre officers.
A day after two senior civil service officers of the Home Department were suspended by the AAP government for refusing to sign on a Cabinet decision file, around 200 DANICS officers went on mass leave while 70 IAS officers have gone on half-day leave, showing solidarity with the suspended officers.
The action was taken against Yashpal Garg, special secretary (Prosecution), and Subhash Chandra, after they refused to sign a file pertaining to the Cabinet decision to increase salary of public prosecutors.
However, the union home ministry termed the suspension as null and void.
Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Service (DANICS) are selected through civil service exams conducted by Union Public Service Commission (UPSC).
Only the Delhi lt governor can suspend DANICS-cadre officers with permission from the Union Home Ministry.
Reacting to the protest, Delhi home minister Satyendra Jain said DANICS and IAS officers do not have the right to go on strike as it is against their service rule.
"People will be happy if they go on strike. All system pertaining to governance is based online today and government will not suffer," Jain said without even considering the import of his words. The Delhi home minister further said that Delhi government was ready to grant all officers even one month or 15-day leave if they apply for the same.
The home minister should understand that the government work is a result of team work and his confrontational statements are not good governance practices.
"The two officers were suspended for not implementing Cabinet decision on December 28. If they had any problem with my order, they should have approached chief minister not LG. The lt governor has already asked officers to defy government decision," he charged.
Four senior judges of the supreme court have publicly made serious allegations against the chief justice of India. Will it have wider impact on judicial discipline? I think so. I think the CJI will have to take note of it and rectify the mistakes he was making.
