Subramanian Swamy demands suspension of Delhi govt: ‘Can’t afford two during lockdown’


March 30, 2020 

Amid the exodus of migrant workers from Delhi, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Sunday said that for the remainder of the days in the 21-day nationwide lockdown imposed by the Centre to reduce the spread of the novel Coronavirus, “we” cannot afford two governments in the same city. He said that the Delhi government must be “suspended” and all logistics must be handed over to the Army. “Delhi Police can tackle crime issues and assist the army in logistics,” he added.

Soon after Dr Swamy tweeted, the Centre on Sunday suspended two senior Delhi government officers and served show-cause notices on two others for “serious lapses” in duty during the ongoing lockdown.

A Home Ministry spokesperson said the two officers who have been suspended with immediate effect are: Additional Chief Secretary (Transport) and Principal Secretary (Finance), who also holds the post of Divisional Commissioner. The two officers who have been served with show-cause notices are Additional Chief Secretary (Home and Land Buildings) and SDM (Seelampur).

The Central government has initiated disciplinary proceedings against the four officers of Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD) for dereliction of duty regarding containment of the spread of COVID-19, the spokesperson said.
