Kejriwal urges Modi to end IAS officers' 'strike'


New Delhi, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Monday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to ask IAS officers to end their 'strike' in the national capital. "I would urge honourable Prime Minister to give them (IAS officers) green signal to end it now (strike)", Kejriwal tweeted. The tweet came a day after he assured the officers that he would ensure their safety and security, and urged them to stop their 'boycott'. It also came after Satyendar Jain, one of his Minister, who had begun his indefinite fast on the issue, was hospitalised Sunday night after his health condition deterioted, who was later admitted to LNJP hospital here. Apprising about the health condition of Mr Jain, the Chief Minister said, "he is doing well". The Chief Minister along with some of his Cabinet ministers including Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, have been protesting at Raj Niwas since last Monday, demanding end off the alleged IAS officers strike and approval of the 'doorstep delivery' of ration. The indefinite fast of Mr Sisodia has entered day-six on Monday. Informing about Mr Sisodia's health, Mr Kejriwal said,"It is 6th day of Manish's fast. He is doing well." AAP has garnered support from JDS, TDP, SP, TMC, JMM, RJD and other parties on this issue.
