Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash on Tuesday wrote a letter to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, saying he and other government officials would attend the Cabinet meeting at the state secretariat provided they were not attacked.
Prakash had alleged last week that two Aam Aadmi Party MLAs assaulted him in Kejriwal’s house.
Later, it was decided at the meeting that the Delhi government’s Budget Session would be held from March 16 to 28, PTI reported. Prakash attended the meeting along with Finance Secretary SN Sahay and General Administration Department Secretary MK Parida.
After the alleged assault on the chief secretary, bureaucrats had refused to resume work under the Kejriwal government. The chief minister said on Friday that Lieutenant General Anil Baijal had assured him that the bureaucracy would return to work.
Meanwhile, the state government is contemplating live streaming all meetings between state officials and Cabinet ministers and putting details of file movements online, to “improve transparency”. According to the proposal, every such meeting will be streamed live on a government website.
An unidentified government official said that if the proposal is passed, it will be tabled in the upcoming Delhi Budget session.
