Delhi Police is Centre’s sole responsibility: AAP
New Delhi: AAP national spokesperson Raghav Chadha said on Saturday said the law and order situation in Delhi was deteriorating with each passing day and the Union ministry of home affairs, which controls Delhi Police, should take “immediate and strong measures” to restore it.
Chadha said the broad daylight snatching and robbery incident involving the Prime Minister’s niece showed how “miserable, pathetic and worrisome” the law and order situation in the capital was.
“Delhi Police needs to be tightened and responsibility has to be fixed for each and every crime that takes place in the city. No lackadaisical approach should be tolerated when it comes to safety and security of people,” Chadha said.
Chadha added that the party didn’t want to indulge in any finger-pointing, but wanted solutions from those who were tasked with the constitutional responsibility to ensure proper law and order and safety of people of Delhi. “It is all the more shocking that such an incident took place near the residences of lieutenant governor and the chief minister,” he said.
He urged the home ministry to take immediate and strong measures to restore law and order in Delhi. “Throwing irrelevant statistics whenever Delhi Police is questioned on this issue does not help,” he added, referring to Delhi Police tweeting statistics of how crime has reduced in the city.
