New Delhi, Feb 20: Hardly a few days pass and AAP makes a headline. Often fo stirring a controversy and seldom for something positive. Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash says he has been assaulted by AAP MLAs at CM Arvind Kejriwal's residence last night. This incident allegedly took place in the presence of the Delhi CM. Kejriwal office says Chief Secretary is playing into the hands of L-G Anil Baijal and the charges are ludicrous.
AAP says that the chief secretary refused to answer questions saying he wasn't answerable to MLAs and CM and that he was answerable only to LG. He used bad language against some MLAs and left without answering any questions. Now he's making ludicrous allegations.
Prakash then went straight to Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijal's residence to complain about "misconduct and abuse" by the lawmakers, including Amanatullah Khan, a controversial politician who has been in trouble with the law in the past.
The IAS officers' association has called an emergency meeting to discuss a response to what they call the assault on a bureaucrat. The officers' body is reportedly demanding a police case against the Chief Minister and the two AAP MLAs.
