Explain the following statement with reason.
It is necessary for civil servants to be politically neutral.
Civil servants are expected to work impartially regardless of the political party in power. New party forming the government will trust the bureaucracy with non-partisanship, thus, fostering mutual trust enabling both to work together for the public interest. Quality of political neutrality for civil servants becomes more important during elections. It ensures positive perception in public regarding the conduct of elections in a free and fair manner.
