The alleged assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash has created a rift between political class and bureaucrats. Secretary, IAS association, Manisha Saxena has told to Governance Now that Prakash attended the meeting of Delhi cabinet so that the budget process doesn't get affected. However, their demand for a written public apology is still on and until this happens, no other meeting will be attended by the officials. The joint forum of Delhi bureaucrats has passed a resolution condemning the attack. As mark of their protest, the officials are observing five minutes silence during lunch break. Led by Prakash, they even carried out a protest march from secretariat to Rajghat on Thursday. Meanwhile, Saxena has clarified that no public work will suffer during the protest.

On the other hand, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has nominated social welfare minister Rajendra Pal Gautam, social welfare minister to meddle between government and bureaucrats. He spoke to officials but no desired outcome has come out so far. Meanwhile, Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal has neither apologised nor tried to build confidence with his officials. Rather in one public function, which was also attended by Kejriwal, Uttam Nagar MLA Naresh Balyan justified the attack on the chief secretary.

The forum of Delhi bureaucrats, in its resolution, has requested the LG to act against the chief minister and deputy chief minister as their names are reflected in the FIR. The bureaucrats are of the opinion that while the top bosses in the AAP are part and parcel of conspiracy, their MLAs are instigating their supporters for violence.
