Delhi Government To Give Names Of Defiant Babus To Supreme Court On Monday

The Supreme Court had asked the government to give names of those officials by October 3.


New Delhi:  The Delhi government today said it will submit an affidavit in the Supreme Court on Monday naming officials who have been "defying" the city administration's orders with specific instances of non-compliance.

The decision was taken on a day the apex court questioned the city government's assertion that babus were not cooperating in checking vector-borne diseases.

"The government will name officers not following its orders in the affidavit to be submitted on Monday. It will also provide specific instances where officers are defying directions of the elected government at the behest of Lt-Governor Najeeb Jung," a source said.

The Supreme Court today took strong exception of Delhi Health Minister Satyendar Jain's allegation, through an affidavit, that officials were not cooperating and taking responsiblity to check vector-borne disease like dengue and chikungunya in the national capital.

The Court asked the government counsel to give names and evidence of those officials by October 3.
