Waiting for a posting

arvind-kejriwal-june16Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is not able to reconcile that he is ruling a Union Territory which is completely controlled by the Central Government. Sources said that while Delhi has a sanctioned strength of 58 IAS officers, the Home Ministry had provided 93 such officers to Delhi, out of which many are still awaiting their posting orders. The sources said many IAS officers, who had been deputed to serve in the Delhi government, were still awaiting their posting while Group ‘A’ officers (Indian Revenue Service) were holding secretary-level posts. The best example is the PWD Department of the Delhi Government where every administrative work is being implemented by Chief Engineer who directly reports to the Chief Minister. When Kejriwal raised questions about sharing the information with the Centre, official sources said the Home Ministry was the cadre controlling authority for Delhi and therefore, it was well within its right to seek this information. Kejriwal alleges LG Najeeb Jung was snooping on Delhi ministers and sending info back to the PMO. Kejriwal had listed States like Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh and Maharashtra and asked whether the Home Ministry could seek such information from them. Senior IAS officers complained to gfiles that the Delhi government cannot take people from outside while keeping the IAS officers waiting endlessly. Kejriwal has, meanwhile, openly reprimanded officers, do your work honestly rather to do politics. Senior IAS officers don’t know what to do in this peculiar situation.
