New Delhi: The protest by leader of op­po­si­tion Vi­jen­der Gupta, BJP leg­is­la­tor M S Sirsa, MP Pravesh Verma and AAP rebel Kapil Sharma con­tin­ued at the CM of­fice in Delhi Sec­re­tar­iat on Thurs­day. The politi­cians said that the protest would con­tinue till chief min­is­ter Arvind Ke­jri­wal and his min­is­ters re­sume work and en­sure that all is­sues are re­solved.

Gupta slammed Ke­jri­wal say­ing the let­ter writ­ten by him to PM Naren­dra Modi seek­ing his in­ter­ven­tion to end the so-called strike by IAS of­fi­cers is a po­lit­i­cal gim­mick aimed at cov­er­ing the AAP gov­ern­ment’s mis­gov­er­nance, in­ac­tion and fail­ure to per­form. “The CM is also cov­er­ing his un­con­sti­tu­tional and il­le­gal ac­tiv­i­ties in this man­ner,” he added.

“All sec­re­taries are re­quired to sub­mit weekly re­ports to the min­is­ters con­cerned un­der Rule 17 of Trans­ac­tion of Busi­ness Rules. We dare the gov­ern­ment to make the re­ports pub­lic. It will ex­pose their claim that of­fi­cers are on strike for the last four months,” Gupta said.
