Following Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s public assurance of safety and security to the IAS officers, the IAS Officers Association said they are open to discussions on issues of governance in the national capital.

“Officers of GNCTD welcome Hon’ble CM’s appeal. We reiterate that we continue to be at work with full dedication & vigour. We look forward to concrete interventions for our security & dignity. We are open to formal discussions with Hon’ble CM on this matter (sic),” the IAS Officers Association from AGMUT (Arunachal, Goa, Mizoram and Union Territories) tweeted yesterday.

Accepting IAS AGMUT Association’s offer of formal talks with Kejriwal, deputy CM Manish Sisodia wrote a letter to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal requesting him to be present at the meeting and end the ongoing impasse.

“We want an immediate resolution to the impasse so that public work can again pick up speed. Since services and security are subjects under you (LG), we want the meeting to be held in your presence. We will give assurances to our officers and you can also give assurances to them,” Sisodia wrote.

The LG will now decide the time and venue of the meeting. The sit-in by Kejriwal and his ministers at Baijal’s office is likely to come to an end if the tussle with the IAS officers is resolved and the LG approves the doorstep delivery of ration scheme.

Earlier on Sunday, the Delhi IAS Officers Association held a press conference to assert that they are not on strike, and accused the AAP government of using them for “political gains”.

“We have been targeted and victimised and told that we are working with someone. We would like to inform that we are not on strike,” said Revenue Secretary Manisha Saxena.

Meanwhile, the AAP leaders on Monday asked the IAS officers to end their strike and said that CM Kejriwal’s statement assuring safety to them is a ‘good step forward’.

On the other hand, Kejriwal whose sit-in protest entered the eighth day on Monday, urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to give a ‘green signal’ to the IAS officers to end their strike.

“I urge Hon’ble PM to give green signal to them (IAS officers) to end it now,” Kejriwal tweeted.
