New Delhi: Jumping into the ongoing turmoil between students at the Ramjas College and the ‘agents’ of Prime Minister Narendra Modi -the Delhi police, Chief Minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal has once again hit out at the law enforcement authority, this time using the shoulders of students.

Kejriwal on Saturday criticised the Delhi Police over its handling of clashes at Delhi University's Ramjas College which made national uproar over the unprofessional handling and alleged that the force has become an "agent" of the BJP.

“The Delhi Police reports to the prime minister, he is not just the PM of the BJP only but of all people. It is the duty of police to protect the people of Delhi and not allow the ABVP and the BJP to engage in goondaism. I strongly condemn the manner in which the Delhi Police has become an agent of the ABVP and the BJP” said Aam Aadmi Party Chief.   

Ramjas College had on Wednesday witnessed clashes between members of the Left-affiliated AISA and the RSS-backed ABVP. The origin of the fight was an invite to JNU students who are facing Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on 'Culture of Protests' which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.

The Delhi Police has acknowledged "unprofessional" conduct on the part of some of its personnel during the clash and suspended three policemen.

He also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not act as a "BJP worker" and hold police accountable for the February 22 violence.

Meanwhile, Delhi CM has moved the Delhi High Court in asking details of bank accounts of Union Finanace Minister Arun Jaitley and his family members. The two leaders are involved in a defamation case after Kejriwal accused Jaitley of financial irregularities in Delhi District Cricket Association (DDCA), a body which the Finance Minister once headed.
