What does Lakshya Singhal say

According to reports, a senior officer of Delhi government has asked Lakshya Singhal about his unconventional hospitality.

Singhal, a 2019 batch, -Goa-Mizoram and Union Territory () cadre, defended his actions, explaining that the priest held a special place in his life, akin to a grandfather figure, which led him to extend this gesture of respect and hospitality.

As per reports, the government has not taken any actions against the officer as such.

“The maximum punishment for this action if at all could be a verbal warning. However, young bureaucrats should differentiate their conduct between professional and personal sphere. Being at key position, their conduct is continuously under watch.
