Top Delhi government bureaucrats from IAS and DANICS cadres came to work today with black ribbons on their arms to protest against the alleged attack by AAP MLAs on the Delhi government Chief Secretary .
IAS associations’ support for Delhi Chief Secretary is an appreciable digression from usual stony silence. They should also speak up on more pressing national issues which affect general populace directly.
