Delhi Police Has Become Agent of BJP: Kejriwal on Ramjas Violence


POSTED ON 26 Feb 2017
2 Min read

After the recent clashes outside Delhi University’s Ramjas College between ABVP and AISA members, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal criticised the Delhi Police over its handling of the incident 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 22 February violence.

“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.

The genesis of the conflict outside Ramjas was an invite to JNU students Umar Khalid and Shehla Rashid to address a seminar on 'Culture of Protests' which was withdrawn by the college authorities following opposition by the ABVP.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.
