“Suspend Officers Who Don’t Join By 2 PM”: Bhagwant Mann Cracks Down
Punjab civil service employees who are on mass leave in protest of their colleague’s “illegal” detention were given a warning today by Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann to return to work by 2 p.m. or risk being suspended. “Such a strike amounts to blackmailing and arm-twisting,” he said.
The tough stand of Bhagwant Mann came after services at administrative offices in the state were hit as the officers went on five-day mass casual leave beginning Monday to protest the arrest of PCS officer Narinder Singh Dhaliwal in Ludhiana by the state vigilance bureau.
Bhagwant Mann’s firm stance was in response to the state’s administrative offices experiencing reduced service as a result of the officers’ five-day mass casual leave that began on Monday in protest of the state vigilance bureau’s detention of PCS officer Narinder Singh Dhaliwal in Ludhiana.
