Centre in past 5years didnt form MLAled thana level panels in Delhi

first_imgNEW DELHI: Launching a fresh attack at the Centre run by the BJP government, Delhi’s ruling party AAP on Tuesday observed that in the light of deteriorating law and order condition in the past five years the Centre did not take initiative to form MLA-led “Thana Level” committees in Delhi. “The BJP since it has come to power has put an end to MLA led thana-level committees to keep police accountable,” said AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj.AAP’s chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said the seven BJP MPs need to step out of their homes and comfort zones and take responsibility. “Delhi has elected BJP MPs for the second time this year. In the last five years, how many times have any of them raised the issue of security in Parliament? Not even once,” he said. Bharadwaj said each time the people of Delhi or the elected government raised questions on the functioning of the police, Vijender Gupta has come out to defend the police. “Even when the Chief Minister was attacked, the LoP found no fault with the police and openly defended its role. Once in three days, Gupta meets the Lt. Governor on some or the other issue. But not once has he ever raised the issue of law and order in the city.

This has happened in the centre of the city. If the wife of a sitting MLA and Leader of Opposition is not safe in Delhi, how will ordinary people feel secure?” she questioned.

The BJP should explain to the people why they’re not able to fulfil the one responsibility they have towards the people of Delhi,” she added.last_img read more
