MHA seeks report on Delhi chief secretary's assault

MHA seeks report on Delhi chief secretary's assault

Maken also said that it would be a very risky situation if Delhi goes towards administrative paralysis and demanded that the Delhi Lieutenant Governor should meet the chief minister and restore confidence.

Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly manhandled by Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs at the residence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday night, drawing widespread condemnations and protest from IAS officers and Government employees.

In his complaint to the police, Prakash said the attack on him was "premeditated" and a "conspiracy" of all those who were present at a meeting late on Monday night at Kejriwal's residence.

AAP has meanwhile termed it a "ludicrous allegation".

Political parties in Delhi also condemned the incident and flayed the AAP. If something good happens Kejriwal and his MLAs take credit and if it's something bad onus falls on government. The chief secretary refused to answer questions, saying that he was not answerable to MLAs and the chief minister, and that he was answerable only to the lieutenant-governor.

Prakash, 56, has alleged that as the meeting started, one of the AAP MLAs slammed the door shut, and he was made to sit between Khan and another legislator on a three-seater sofa. "There was no incident of assault or attempted assault by any AAP MLAs".

Chief secretary Prakash alleged on Tuesday he was assaulted by some AAP MLAs in front of Kejriwal and his deputy Manish Sisodia at the chief minister's residence a day before. MHA has sought a report on the incident from the Lieutenant Governor of Delhi. The officers' body is reportedly demanding a police case against the Chief Minister and the two AAP lawmakers. Taking serious note of the incident, Home Ministry has asked for a report from Delhi Lt Governor. Stating that the MLAs landed several blows on his head and temple, Mr. Prakash said he managed to get out of the room and leave the CM's residence in his official auto.

Aam Admi Party, on the other hand, has called the allegations baseless. Obviously, he is doing it at BJP's behest.

Echoing his sentiments, senior BJP leader Satish Upadhyay said,"The Kejriwal government's fear of losing the by-elections in 20 Assembly constituencies has pushed Delhi into a constitutional crisis and now it is time that the dismissal of this government should be discussed and considered".

It further said Prakash was trying to disrupt governance in the Capital.
