Delhi Chief Secretary assault case: Govt mulling live streaming of official meetings
New Delhi, February 26: Following the alleged assault on Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash at the chief minister's residence last week, the Delhi government is mulling live streaming of all official meetings.
Prakash was allegedly assaulted by AAP MLAs and others during a meeting at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's residence on February 19.
A senior government official said that as per a plan, live feed of meetings with audio output will be available on a website. If the plan is passed, funds will be allocated for it in the upcoming budget, he said.
"Through live streaming of official meetings, people will be able to know who spoke what in the meeting, be it the elected representative or officials," the official said. There is also a plan to put all file movement and noting online, he said.
"Plan is also to put all file movement and file notings online for people to see who was working on a file for how long, who cleared it and who wrote what on a particular file, be it the elected government or officers," the official said.
In the past, the AAP government had alleged that some officers created hurdles in the works of city administrations.
Since the alleged attack on the chief secretary, officers have not been attending meetings of the chief minister and his cabinet colleagues, demanding that Kejriwal apologise for the incident.
