Employees association demands action against AAP MLAs

Employees association demands action against AAP MLAs

Delhi Police detained Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLA Prakash Jarwal on Tuesday in connection with an alleged altercation between him and Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash.

Addressing the demonstrators Mr Tiwari said that Monday's violent assault on the chief secretary is a repeat of the violent assault faced by the BJP delegation, which had gone to meet the chief minister on January 30.

Saxena further said that the officers would work with a black band as a mark of protest and that the association has also filed a police complaint.

On Tuesday, the Chief Secretary alleged that he was manhandled at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence by two lawmakers of the ruling AAP - Ajay Dutt and Prakash Jarwal. The MLAs are under tremendous pressure from public, it said.

He said that 2-3 more complaints have been received from AAP MLA's and that these were being examined by the police. If something good happens Kejriwal and his MLAs take credit and if it's something bad onus falls on government. Chief Minister himself has been a civil servant, did he ever do this? The BJP has stooped very low in disrupting governance in Delhi through the LG and officers. Among the two MLAs who assaulted the bureaucrat was close allies to CM Kejriwal aide Amanatullah Khan.

Anshu Prakash's sensational claims were addressed by AAP, who called the allegations simply ludicrous instructed on behalf of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). In his complaint to DCP (North) seeking action, Prakash alleged that Kejriwal, his deputy Manish Sisodia and 11 AAP MLAs threatened to "implicate" him in false cases if the issue of releasing TV advertisements about the AAP government's achievements was not resolved. The top bureaucrat Anshu Prakash alleges that he was attacked when Kejriwal was there following being summoned for discussions on Aadhaar-related problems.

The incident could snowball into a major confrontation between the Centre and the AAP government, as Rajnath Singh stepped into the matter and sought a report on it from the Lt Governor. There was no incident of assault or attempted assault by any AAP MLAs, a statement said.

Sharmistha Mukherjee, Delhi Congress Vice-President, said, "In a democracy, we expect that all disputes will be solved by dialogue".
