Officers' association passes resolution on recent events urging conducive atmosphere
GN Bureau | May 21, 2015
There seems to be no attempt being made to create an atmosphere of congeniality that will go a long way in building trust that is necessary to make an administration to perform as one unit. In Delhi, the officials and politicians continue to hurl loaded words at each other.
On Wednesday, the IAS officers deplored the way their colleagues in Delhi were being treated in a power struggle between chief minister Arvind Kejriwal and lieutenant governor Najeeb Jung. This was a natural reaction of the bureaucrats being made to suffer for implementing orders.
On Thursday, a member of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) sent out a tweet that seems bad in taste and fails to appreciate the anxiousness of the officials, who may be expressing sentiments of all the employees. AAP leader Ashutosh tweeted on Thursday "IAS association was sleeping like Kumbhkaran when home secretary and foreign secretary were humiliated and removed."
