Will not follow officer suspension orders, AAP tells Union government


Hardening its stance, Delhi government today conveyed to Union Home Ministry it will not implement the Centre’s order overturning suspension of two DANICS-cadre officers, saying doing so will lead to “widespread indiscipline, insubordination and a state of “complete paralysis”.

In a letter to Home Minister Rajnath Singh, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia said the city’s Home Minister was “superior” to the special secretaries working under him and therefore has “lawful power” to place them under suspension.

“Implementing MHA’s order will seriously undermine the authority of an elected government and promote widespread indiscipline and insubordination among the DANICS officers, which may result into complete paralysis of Delhi government,” the letter said.

Sisodia said revoking the suspension will lead to “anarchy and sabotage” of functioning of a democratically elected government by the bureaucracy, and added “It may also be seen that communication from MHA is merely a letter and not an order of the President of India.”
