New Delhi, Dec 31: After bureaucrats in Delhi went on mass leave to protest against the suspension of two DANICS-cadre officers, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal warned the agitating officers of strict action. In a series of tweets, Arvind Kejriwal called the DANICS and IAS associations B team of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and said that government wouldn’t be affected if they go on strike.

“DANICS and IAS associations in Delhi have become full fledged B teams of BJP. People will be very happy if these officers go on long leave. Government ready to give paid leave. Governance will become honest, smooth and efficient,” tweeted Arvind Kejriwal. “Government is exploring all options against officers who are on leave today. We won’t tolerate corruption and insubordination,” he further wrote.

Attacking at prime minister, Arvind Kejriwal said that Narendra Modi is targeting the Aam Aadmi Party government in Delhi through Lieutenant Governor (LG) and bureaucrats. “LG personally attended DANICS association meeting yesterday through speaker phone. LG was also in touch with Nripendra Misra in PMO. Narendra Modi planned the strike through them,” alleged Kejriwal.
The Delhi Government had yesterday suspended two senior officers of its Home Department after they refused to sign on a Cabinet decision file, following which around 200 DANICS-cadre officers went on mass leave. Later, the Ministry of Home Affairs declared the suspension order null and void.
