State IAS officers condemns assault on Delhi CS

ITANAGAR, Feb 21: The IAS fraternity of Arunachal Pradesh has vehemently condemned the assault on the Chief Secretary of New Delhi by the elected legislators and demanded severe legal action against the perpetrators.
Secretary (GA) Sadhana Deori, on behalf of IAS Officers Association of Arunachal Pradesh has in a release on Wednesday termed the act as undignified and highly deplorable.
“This calls into question the harmonious relationship between the civil service and the elected wing of the government and will lead to impairment of the effective functioning of the bureaucracy in free and impartial manner. The behaviour of the elected representatives with the head of the bureaucracy in the state government amounts to threat to life and physical safety of a public servant on duty and should be meted with severe legal action. The incident that took place at the official residence of the chief minister is appalling and will erode the morale of hard working sincere officers if no action is taken against the culprits,” she stated and expressed solidarity with the IAS Association of Delhi.
