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.”
