Over Delhi Police Row

NEW DELHI  — Continuing his crusade to wrestle control of the Delhi Police from the Centre, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to “stop being stubborn” and “work together” by handing over law and order to the Aam Aadmi Party-government.

A survey by Centre for Media Studies (CMS)- India Corruption Study 2015, shows 45 percent of residents surveyed found reduction in corruption across departments of Delhi Government vis-a-vis those of Central Government.

In a series of tweets, Kejriwal today raised questions on Modi’s “capabilities and intentions,” while showing that AAP government’s intentions and administration capability has helped reduce corruption in the state.

Since AAP came to power in February, Kejriwal has been engaged in a turf war with the central government over who should control the Delhi Police, and expressed concern about increasing crime in the state.

Along with several attacks on the BJP-led Central government, Kejriwal recently asked Modi to focus on improving the condition of police in the capital instead of going on foreign trips.

Two girls were brutally gang raped in the capital over the weekend, after which Kejriwal held a cabinet meeting on Monday to come up with plans to make the city safer.
