AAP Protest: Kejriwal Calls off 9-Day Sit-in, Returns to CM House
AAP is demanding that L-G Anil Baijal direct IAS officers to end their “strike” and take action against them.
Why is Arvind Kejriwal & AAP Protesting
According to the AAP government, officers have not been attending meetings with the ministers and not picking up their calls due to which government work was suffering.
Officers have gone on a "partial strike" since the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash on 19 February.
Kejriwal on Tuesday alleged that some officers informed him that the L-G's office was "orchestrating" the "officers' strike" and that's why the Lt Governor does not want bureaucrats to end their strike.
The L-G's office slammed Kejriwal's sit-in, saying it was one more "dharna without reason.”
Kejriwal, Ministers Spend the Night at Governor Residence
On Tuesday, 12 June, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal released a video from the L-G’s office stating that AAP ministers had "no option" but to stage a sit-in as Lt Governor Anil Baijal was not paying heed to the Delhi government's demands, "despite several requests.”
It was the first time in the history of Delhi that a chief minister and his Cabinet colleagues have spent a night at the L-G's office to press for their demands, sources said.
