Behaviour towards civil servants has to be dignified: MoS PMO

Delhi(PTI): Amid the controversy over appointment of Delhi’s acting Chief Secretary, Union Minister Jitendra Singh on Monday stressed on the need of maintaining dignified behaviour towards civil service officers. Singh said there may be less controversial ways of handling the issue.

“Without getting into any kind of politics, on behalf of Department of Personnel and Training, I can only say that behaviour towards civil services officers should be in a way that befits their dignity and posts hold by them,” he told reporters here.

Singh said if any controversies crop up, there may be some other ways of solving them which are less controversial and more dignified. The minister was speaking against the backdrop of a controversy over the appointment of IAS officer Shakuntala Gamlin as the acting Chief Secretary.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has opposed the responsibility given to her by Lt Governor Najeeb Jung and accused her of favouring power distribution companies. The Minister was speaking on the sidelines of a conference called by the Centre to discuss various service-related matters including formation of civil services board and others with principal secretaries (personnel) of states and union territories administration.
