Kejriwal driving his babus away

img-dec2015-28Rarely do street protest leaders turn into good administrators on taking hold of the reins of government. There are umpteen examples to cite from the recent past…Karpoori Thakur, Devi Lal, Mamata Banerjee…and now there’s Arvind Kejriwal. That the government of Delhi is functioning at all is a wonder. There’s mayhem and discontent in the corridors of power. Kejriwal does less work than he creates news. He has reportedly created a coterie of a few senior administrative officers who are managing to run the government with the help of junior officers. IAS officers in Delhi are aghast and unhappy. AAP MLAs have become openly demanding and, like any other political outfit, want their supporters to be accommodated within the government and sarkari social benefits to be doled out to them. Second, the tone and tenor of the ministers and MLAs have become aggressive. Naturally, most senior officers of the AGMUT cadre are to be seen in the corridors of North Block. Insiders reveal that the Delhi bureaucracy is not left with much that is constructive or career promoting. Generally, AGMUT-cadre officers are known to stay more in Delhi than any other place, but now they are all looking to go anywhere else. There should be harmonious relations between the bureaucracy and the Chief Minister. Kejriwal should mend his ways fast.
