Delhi’s IAS association (Indian Administrative Services) today held a press conference to refute the claims of the Aam Aadmi party, that the members of the association are on a strike. They instead accused that they’re being victimized and targeted. Manisha Saxena from the association, told the media during the press conference, “I would like to inform that we are not on strike. The information that IAS officers in Delhi are on strike is completely false and baseless. We are attending meetings, all departments are doing their work. We are sometimes also working on holiday.”
The government of Delhi had accused the association of being obstacle in the work, and have been on strike since four months this year. Manisha, however, said that the government should let them do their work, and they’re being used to reasons that are ultimately political in nature, and for the gains of the party.
Chief Minister of Delhi, and the leader of AAP party, Arvind Kejriwal, has been protesting outside the house of Lt. Governor Anil Baijal’s for a week now. His aim is to persuade Bajial to release a directive for all those employees who are on strike. Now, if there is no strike, as Manisha has stated, then why is he protesting. He hasn’t gotten any sort of answer from Bajial, and has, in protest of that, decided to take out a march to Modi’s residence at 7, Lok Kalyan Marg starting from Mandi House at 4 p.m. on Sunday. However, the party has already assured the police and the authorities that there is not going to be any violence from the side of the party members and the people who choose to join the march.
