Delhi Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash was allegedly manhandled by a few AAP MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ' s residence , an official said, even as the chief minister's office dismissed the accusation as "bizarre and baseless".

“ Delhi CM office strongly denies allegations by the Chief Secretary . There was no incident of assault or attempted assault by any AAP MLAs,” a statement from Kejriwal ’ s office said. The IAS officers ’ body condemned the “appalling and shocking physical assault .”

Kejriwal’s government has had several run-ins with the L-G’s office over the transfer of bureaucrats and the administrative control of the Capital.

The AAP said even in Monday night’s meeting Prakash said he was not answerable to the MLAs but to the L-G.

A senior bureaucrat in the government, who did not want to be named, said, “The CM had called the CS (Prakash) for a meeting at his residence on Monday evening. But two AAP MLAs abused and manhandled him, after which he left the meeting.”

Two other bureaucrats confirmed the incident.

DN Singh, a DANICS officer and a member of the Delhi Government Employees Welfare Association, threatened to launch a strike until action was taken against the culprits.

“He (Prakash) was called at midnight to discuss advertisement issue and was assaulted by some MLAs. This is a constitutional crisis. If the chief secretary can be attacked, we are not safe. We are going on strike with immediate effect till the time the culprits are arrested.”

Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash has alleged that the incident took place when he was called to discuss the issue of distribution of ration as well as the advertisements for Delhi government's three-year anniversary at Kejriwal ' s residence .

Delhi chief secretary Anshu Prakash's allegation that he was assaulted by two Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) MLAs at Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal ' s residence has sparked a political storm in the national capital.

The AAP said the allegations were “bizarre”.

It said the chief secretary was meeting Kejriwal and MLAs to discuss why a large number of families were not getting ration due to the glitches in the implementation of Aadhaar.

“The chief secretary is doing this at the behest of the Centre...In a meeting at CM house, the CS told the MLAs that he is not answerable to the elected MLAs, and that he is only answerable to the L-G. The allegation of physical manhandling are completely baseless and bizarre,” AAP spokesperson and Greater Kailash MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj said.

Party MLA Amanatullah Khan too denied the allegations. “The CS said he is not answerable to us...He got angry and had stormed out... MLAs went after him to get him back. He still went out. If there was a problem, he should have dialled 100. Why is he acting this way afterwards? It is shameful,” he said.

Prakash Jarwal, the AAP MLA from Devli, sent a complaint to the L-G’s office and the Delhi Police commissioner, seeking action against Prakash for his conduct at the meeting.
