Centre revokes AAP government’s suspension of 2 officials

New Delhi, Dec 31 (IANS) The union Home ministry on Thursday declared null and void the suspension of two officers belonging to the ‘DANICS’ cadre by the Delhi government.

This comes as at least 200 senior bureaucrats of Delhi government went on a day’s leave of absence on Thursday as a sign of protest against the suspension of the two officials.

The decision to go on a mass leave was taken by the members of the DANICS (Delhi, Andaman and Nicobar Islands Civil Service) Officers’ Association.

Delhi’s Aam Aadmi Party government had suspended Subhash Chandra, special secretary (prisons), and Yashpal Garg, special secretary (prosecution), for allegedly refusing to sign a file pertaining to a cabinet decision to increase the salary of public prosecutors.

Meanwhile, Delhi’s Home Minister Satyendra Jain said the strike would not make any difference to the functioning of the government.

“There are lakhs of people working in Delhi government. If some people go on leave, it will not make any difference,” Jain said.
