Mrs. Kejriwal has taken voluntary retirement!Politics never fails to surprise us! Yesterday I came to know that Mrs. Sunita Kejriwal, wife of present Delhi CM Mr. Arvind Kejriwal, has taken voluntary retirement from Govt. Service. So what is the big deal about it? Mrs. Kejriwal belonged to Indian Revenue Service (an all-India Service). She has spent almost her entire service of 22 years in Delhi! Her illustrious husband, the epitome of fight against corruption and for probity in public life, also belonged to IRS and he also spent his entire service in Delhi. Now Mrs. Kejriwal has been forced to take voluntary retirement when her posting outside Delhi can't be further postponed.
Every Government employee knows that it is highly irregular for an all India Service officer to remain in the same place for 18 years/22 years (Mr. Kejriwal/Mrs.Kejriwal). In many cases departmental proceedings have been initiated for posting in the same place for even 5 years! Then how can the great couple, the beacon of light against corruption, continued enjoying their entire service in Delhi?
Can anybody explain this to me?
