In a tweet, the minister shared a short video in which AAP leader Raghav Chadha allegedly told an interviewer that “babus” (bureaucrats) cannot be removed from office and the government cannot transfer them or assign them to different departments.
“Good people can be rewarded with good positions such as health secretary or home secretary. If a bureaucrat does not do a good job, he would be sent to say, tribal affairs, on a punitive position,” said M Chadha in the video. .
However, the full context of the AAP chief’s remarks was not available.
Switching to Hindi, the justice minister urged ministry officials to ‘ignore the insult done to their services by the Kejriwal team as we salute your contribution’.
