Lt Governor Anil Baijal has assured Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal that he will speak to bureaucrats to ensure that the work of the Delhi government is not affected, Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia today said.
Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues met Baijal at his residence. He highlighted the problems faced by his government after officers decided to boycott meetings called by ministers following the alleged attack on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash by Aam Aadmi Party MLAs during a meeting on Monday night.
Sisodia said that governance has suffered as officials did not attend meetings and several meetings were cancelled and decisions deferred.
Kejriwal's meeting with Baijal came after a Delhi Police team today descended on the chief minister's residence and seized a hard disk of the CCTV camera system installed there in connection with the alleged attack on Prakash.
Police claimed that its action came after its request for CCTV camera footage from Kejriwal's residence was not met.
"We are grateful to the LG that he is looking into the issue from the perspective of Delhi's governance," Sisodia told reporters after the meet between Kejriwal and LG.
"The LG has assured that he will speak to the officials and ensure that work is not affected and work with ministers."
