New Delhi :  

A day after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that ‘90 percent of the state government’s top bureaucrats, IAS officers do not work”, his predecessor and three times state chief minister Sheila Dikshit sent a sharp rejoinder to him on Tuesday.

Dixit tweeted, “Kejriwalji, Delhi has some of the most efficient bureaucrats. They helped me tirelessly in achieving my goal of transforming Delhi.”

Dixit was Delhi’s chief minister for 15 years from 1198 to 2013. She lost the Assembly elections to AAP in 2013.

Taking further dig on Kejriwal she tweeted, “Atal Bihari Vajpayee government was at the centre between 1998 and 2004 and I did not find excuses to deliver on the promises made to the people of Delhi.”

She further tweeted, "If you only wish to pick up battles of ego, you cannot even work under best of environments."

Kejriwal addressing in an event comprising of junior employees and pensioners of the power department he said "They said if regularised they won't work. I said, if this is the logic then all the IAS officers should be ad-hoc because they do not work. 90 per cent of them (IAS officers) do not work and hold up the files."
