  • Delhi government statement on officer relieved from the additional charge of Delhi Dialogue Commission

9 May 2015

Attention of Delhi government has been drawn towards motivated reports in a section of media about reasons for its decision to relieve an officer from the additional charge of member secretary of Delhi Dialogue Commission, who was on deputation from the central government.

Delhi government takes strong exception to the attempts to trivialize the reasons for relieving Mr Ashish Joshi from the additional charge of member-secretary of DDC and his repatriation to to parent cadre.

Normally the government does not react to insinuations by individuals, but in the present case since the officer concerned has been running a systematic vilification campaign against the Delhi government based on false allegations and twisted facts, the government has decided to make a public statement.

The officer concerned is supposed to be aware of the conduct rules of service. There are clear instances of multiple violations of these rules by this officer, which have now been duly communicated to his parent cadre.

Delhi government has apprised the concerned central government department about the specific instances of misconduct and misbehavior by Mr Joshi, his attempts to interfere in the functioning of various government departments and adverse comments made by him against senior officials. 

He also appears to be spreading confusion about his deputation from the Centre to Delhi government. Deputation is an arrangement between lending and accepting departments of the officer concerned, which can be discontinued in cases of disagreements and lack of faith in a particular officer.

The officer concerned is free to represent his grievances to his parent cadre, but spreading canards about the Delhi government based on false allegations is clearly professional misconduct.

He has been harassing Delhi government officials since he was relieved from his additional duty and has been making unsuccessful attempts to contact officers through e-mail and on telephone.

All these attempts by this officer appear to be aimed at diverting attention and spreading confusion to avoid the truth from being known to the world.
