'Did not put the gun, only gave invitation', Rekha Arya in the news due to her statement

Dehradun: The issue of a private religious function being organised by The Minister of Empowerment and Child Development Rekha Arya in UP by an officer of the food department to invite her subordinate officers by writing a letter to her subordinates has gained momentum. Congress state president Karan Mahra has written a letter to CM Pushkar Singh Dhami in the matter demanding a ban on such an order at the government level.

She said that this is a private religious function of the minister. Such an order will encourage corruption in the State. It will also tarnish the image of the state government and the state of Uttarakhand. On behalf of Additional Commissioner Food P.S. Pangti, Divisional Food Controller Garhwal and Kumaon, Joint Controller in-charge, Legal Metrology, Deputy Commissioner's Office Garhwal and Kumaon, Divisional Senior Finance Officer and all district supply officers have been written to baba Vankhandi Nath Temple Jogi Nawada Bareilly Bareilly from 4th to 9th August, an invitation has been given to the 105 Shivlingas and Pran Pratishtha of Maa Bagulamukhi Mata and Nandi Baba in Uttar Pradesh.

The letter says that invitation cards should be made available to all officers and employees of the Food Department. The case of this letter of the officer has caught my eye. However, the departmental officer says that it is not a government letter or a departmental order. Women Empowerment and Child Development Minister Rekha Arya say she has given an invitation not to point a gun. Whether you want to come to the voluntary virtuous ceremony or not. She said she understands whether one has to stay at the ceremony or not depends on her desire. When we invite someone, we leave it to their will.
