Shinde Terms AAP Protest 'Anarchy'
Terming the street agitation by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, an anarchy, Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde snubbed his demand of sacking five police personnel saying the action could be taken only after a judicial inquiry into the case. The AAP’s demand of bringing the Delhi Police under the Delhi government was also rejected.
“Delhi Police will remain under the MHA; it can’t be brought under the control of Delhi government.
Kejriwal should respect the chair and wait for the report of the judicial inquiry ordered by the Lt Governor,” Shinde said adding that generally such probe is conducted by the senior officer but they have taken some serious steps and have ordered a judicial probe. Shinde, who earlier made it clear that Kejriwal will not be allowed to protest outside the Home Ministry’s office in North Block called the AAP protest outside Rail Bhawan a complete anarchy. Shinde said: “The whole country is watching whose anarchy is this.” He said the security matters in the national capital are looked after by the Police Commissioner and Kejriwal should trust them.
