New Delhi: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has expressed confidence that the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) will remain in power for the next 10-15 years as the people of the city-state are happy with the way the government is functioning.
Addressing bureaucrats on the Civil Services Day, Kejriwal said, “People are very happy and if the government continues function in this manner then we are not going anywhere for 10-15 years. Some may like it, others may not. For those of you who are over the age of 45, there is no choice .”
A report in The Indian Express adds that Kejriwal said that bureaucrats will have to follow AAP's mandate as people of Delhi had given a historic verdict in the party's favour.
The CM also said his government was the perfect opportunity for bureaucrats to fulfil their dreams, adding that babus who come with good ideas will be encouraged to implement them.
On the strike by by DANCIS, IPS officers last year, Kejirwal said that the strike was political in nature and that his government won't tolerate politics.
The IE quotes him: “We can tolerate anything but we will not tolerate politics. If you are interested in politics, then resign, contest elections and confront us.”
