The deplorable way, in which two IAS officers were treated in the power struggle between Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung, had attracted reactions from other IAS officers yesterday.

Now, the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has retaliated via tweets.

Referring to the sacking of the two top bureaucrats by the BJP-led government at the Centre earlier this year, AAP leader Ashutosh tweeted, “IAS association was sleeping like Kumbhkaran when Home Secretary and Foreign Secretary were humiliated and removed.”

The members of IAS Officers’ Association, on Wednesday, met to discuss the escalating turf war between Kejriwal and the Lieutenant Governor, which has resulted in one officer being publicly criticized and another ignominiously removed and locked out of his office.

“We view with anguish the way IAS officers have been treated and subjected to character assassination, we condemn it,” stated the resolution passed by the officers on Wednesday.

Shakuntala Gamlin, whose appointment by the Lieutenant Governor last week triggered the ugly row, was also present during the meeting. Kejriwal had accused Gamlin of favouring power distribution companies and acting against public interest.

The Chief Minister removed the Principal Secretary who signed off on his decision to appoint Shakuntala Gamlin. On Monday, Anindo Majumdar was locked out of his office and two more officers were appointed in his place, but they too, are caught in the crossfire.

“All transfers and appointments in the past few days stand cancelled as they were not approved by him,” the Lieutenant Governor responded by writing to the Delhi government yesterday.

Kejriwal and his deputy CM, Manish Sisodia, met with officers yesterday amid reports that many bureaucrats had requested to be transferred out of Delhi and those working outside did not want to return.

According to the sources in the Home Ministry, at least a dozen officers have applied for transfers, but AAP has rejected it.
