Delhi Police has become agent of BJP: Kejriwal

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday criticised the Delhi Police over its handling of clashes at DU's Ramjas College and alleged that the force has become an "agent" of the BJP.

He also appealed to Prime Minister Narendra Modi to not act as a "BJP worker" and hold police accountable for the February 22 violence. "I strongly condemn the manner in which the Delhi Police has become an agent of the ABVP and the BJP. It is the duty of police to protect the people of Delhi and not allow the ABVP and the BJP to engage in goondaism (sic)," he told reporters.

"I hope the Prime Minister will perform his duty in an impartial way and not work like a BJP worker. The Delhi Police reports to the PM. He is not the prime minister of the BJP only but of all people, including me, and he should perform his duty," the AAP chief said. Meanwhile, the Delhi Commission for Women has ordered an inquiry into the alleged attacks on women by policemen during violence at Delhi University's Ramjas College and has issued a notice to Delhi Police.

Budget session from March 6

The AAP government on Saturday said it will call a 5-day Budget Session of Delhi Assembly starting from March 6 during which it is expected to provide sufficient funds to education and health sectors.
