Dubbing civil servants as the “steel frame” of India, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday asked them not to follow “wrong orders” of a political executive or become “Yes masters”, but take decisions in the interest of the nation.
“Civil services have power. Decisions should be taken on the basis of national interest and in the interest of the people. If a political executive gives wrong orders, do not be scared to show them rules. Tell him that you are legally wrong and do not sign the file,” the Minister said, addressing the inaugural session of 11th Civil Services Day function here.
