New Delhi: On Saturday (23 May) an advertisement released in newspapers by the Arvind Kejriwal government of Delhi sparked controversy. In this advertisement issued for the recruitment of volunteers in the Civil Defense Corps, the terms of eligibility were to be the subjects of Sikkim.

Acting on this, the Delhi Lt. Governor has suspended a senior officer working in the headquarters of the Delhi Civil Defense Directorate (Delhi Civil Defense) with immediate effect for offending the territorial integrity of the country.

Delhi Lieutenant Governor Anil Baijan gave this information by tweeting on Saturday (May 23). He wrote, “A senior officer working in the directorate has been suspended because he published an advertisement describing Sikkim as a separate country, which has insulted the territorial integrity of the country.”

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal also showed seriousness in the matter, writing, “Sikkim is an integral part of India. This kind of mistake cannot be tolerated. The advertisement has been withdrawn and action is being taken against the officer.”

The BJP also erupted in a Delhi government advertisement calling Sikkim a separate country. Delhi Pradesh President Manoj Tiwari raised the question that Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal should explain why the Delhi government has shown Sikkim as a separate country.

Delhi Pradesh President Manoj Tiwari said in a video message, “I picked up the newspaper as early as today. Looked at an advertisement by the Delhi government showing Sikkim as a different country. How can a state government do this? Can the government be so clumsy as to show a state as an independent country?

Can it be considered a lapse before such a huge advertisement goes? To understand how many big omissions are happening. Arvind Kejriwal, awake. Tell Delhi what you have done the question is big, it will go a long way.”

Let me tell you that in the advertisement released in newspapers on Saturday for recruitment as a volunteer in the Civil Defense Corps, the Kejriwal government had set four conditions of eligibility. In which the first condition said that he should be a citizen of India or should have a subject of Bhutan, Nepal or Sikkim and a resident of Delhi.

BJP says that by mentioning the subjects of Sikkim, it seems that the Delhi government is considering this integral part of India as a separate country. On which many leaders including BJP’s Delhi state president Manoj Tiwari tweeted and sought answers from the Kejriwal government.
