New Delhi, February 21, 2018 (TMC Desk) Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash, who was allegedly beaten up by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs, may face action for not turning up for a Delhi Assembly committee meeting here on Wednesday evening.
On Tuesday, the Chief Secretary alleged that he was beaten up by AAP MLA Amanatullah Khan and another legislator in the presence of Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal at the Chief Minister’s residence here on Monday night, where he had been called for a meeting.
Later on Tuesday, the IAS Association decided that officers will not meet or talk over phone with the Chief Minister or his Ministers or party MLAs till Kejriwal apologises and takes action on the alleged assault.
Speaking to the media on Wednesday, MLA and AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said that the Chief Secretary and two other IAS officers did not turn up for the assembly committee meeting in the evening.
He said that the committee believes that it was due to the decision taken by the IAS Association.
Bharadwaj said it is “contempt of assembly” and that the committee is thinking about initiating “contempt proceedings”.
“Committee members feel that contempt proceedings should be initiated against all these people and against the IAS Association leaders. The committee has not taken a decision yet, but will think about it,” Bharadwaj said.
The MLA said that the Chief Secretary was supposed to come for the meeting at 5 p.m, but he and two other IAS officers did not turn up.
