AAP declares nationwide protest after cops raid Delhi CM’s home
February 23, 2018
Hours after the Delhi Police searched CM Arvind Kejriwal’s residence to collect evidence in the Chief Secretary Anshu Prakash assault case, the AAP today declared a nation-wide protest slated for Saturday against the Union government.
The protests will reportedly be staged against the Centre over its “conspiracy to destablise Delhi government”.Addressing the media today after the Delhi Police raid, Aam Aadmi Party leader Sanjay Singh said, “What happened today at the CM’s residence can happen to you tomorrow at your residence. No action taken when AAP MLAs were assaulted…”
On being probed about an AAP MLA endorsing the alleged assault on Anshu Prakash, the party spokespersons feigned ignorance and added, “Party has not yet seen the statement. Once, we watch it, we would be able to respond better.”
The Delhi CM also met with the LG and issued a tweet following his meeting. He wrote on Twitter, “
Officers not attending meetings for last 3 days. Governance suffering. I’m very concerned. LG assured he will take all steps to ensure officers started functioning normally. Council of ministers assured him all cooperation. All of us need to work together for betterment of Delhi.”(Agencies)
