200 Delhi government officials on protest leave

New Delhi, Dec 31: At least 200 senior bureaucrats of the Delhi government went on a day's protest leave here on Thursday over the suspension of two officials.

The decision was taken by the members of the DANICS (Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Service) Officers' Association to protest the suspension of two senior colleagues.

Subhash Chandra, special secretary (Prisons) and Yashpal Garg, special secretary (Prosecution), were suspended by Delhi's Aam Aadmi Party government for allegedly refusing to sign on two cabinet notes.

Delhi Home Minister Satyendra Jain said he had no information about the strike. "Suspension is an administration matter, a cabinet decision was failed to be implemented," Jain said.

Delhi Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) president Satish Upadhyay also condemned the suspension of the two officers, saying it was harassing officials and demanded Jain's resignation.
