The circular further states that Tiwari, despite being an employee who had been appointed under the Cultural quota had refused to sing when she had been given instructions in advance by the Division General Manager. The circular signed by the GM added that her refusal to sing showed her casual and irresponsible attitude towards her job and hence had been suspended. Th General Manager further accused Tiwari of “gross misconduct” and failing to maintain “absolute devotion” towards duty and asked that she should be taken up under the Discipline and Appeal.
