The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday hit out at the Centre and Delhi police for deteriorating law and order situation in the national Capital. Senior party leader Gopal Rai also questioned police approach in solving and recovering valuables snatched from PM's niece within 24 hours while they do not work in the same way when it comes to common people.
Rai also demanded the BJP to release a white paper on the registered crime cases this year till September in Delhi. "We demand a white paper on the registered cases this and want to know why the criminals are not being arrested yet," he said.
Hitting back at the BJP which has sought the implementation of NRC to identify and evict illegal immigrants, he said the main reason for increasing crime in Delhi is corruption in the policing system "from bottom to top.
The AAP said the Bharatiya Janata Party was raising the NRC issue to "divert" people's attention from the increasing crime rate in the national capital. He said that in Delhi, the crime is increasing every day and this is making Delhi unsafe for the common people and this raises the question what is the reason behind the increasing number of crimes in the city.
Rai further said that if the BJP does not reveal the reason for the increasing crimes and the police inaction then the AAP will hold Pol Kholo Abhiyan to expose the BJP."
Citing the data of the Delhi Police Rai said, "Till September this year there 2, 12,773 registered incidents of crimes. According to the data this year in Delhi 1609 rape cases are being registered and murder cases are 373. Only in September 40 murder, 35 attempts to murder, 130 robberies, 420 snatchings, 160 rape cases, 200 molestation cases, 450 kidnapping cases, 200 burglaries,150 house theft and 3400 motor vehicle theft are being registered."
Attacking the BJP, Rai said that in the past few days BJP leaders are giving random statements on the increasing crime situation and they are trying to hide the reality from the people. "In Delhi, only two works are under the purview of the BJP. One is the sanitation which comes under the MCDs and the second one is law and order which comes directly under the Home Ministry led by Amit Shah," he added.
