"No hooliganism by bureaucrats will be tolerated in Delhi. The IAS officers played politics... we will not tolerate this... If you indulge in corruption, then you'll go to jail," Kejriwal said.

"If you don't agree with cabinet decisions, then you'll be suspended. All those IAS officers who have problem with our government should leave Delhi," he added.

The Chief Minister said that never in the country's history had IAS officers gone on mass casual leave. "They have gone on a strike for the first time. Those who have problem with us should give us their names. I'll write to the (union) home minister to send them out of Delhi or they should join the Central government," he added.

The Indian Administrative Service Association did not comment on the remark, though one officer said if Kejriwal had issues regarding administrative control over senior officers, he should sort it out with the Centre.
