New Delhi, Aug 2: Durga is not alone. The entire Central Services is backing her by appealing to the department of personnel and training (DoPT), under the banner of Central Civil & Administrative Officers Association, demanding immediate intervention by the Central government. If the state does not response, he urges the central to do something.
Raisinng concern over the restrictions and political pressure that the IAS officers work in, the team also demanded adequate safeguards in the All India Services (Discipline and Appeal) Rules, 1969 regarding suspension.
This was raised so that no irreparable loss and injustice is done to officers, "which is sine-qua-non to maintain uprightness, honesty and integrity of the members of the (IAS) service and last, but not the least the morale of the members of the service to serve the public at large following the law of the land."
The protest has attained a national dimension, adding fuel to the fire of common ma who believes that Durga Shakti was victim to vicious political interests masked in the defence of the UP govt that she had created communal tension by ordering the demolition wall of a religious structure in the area.
