Commenting on Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party’s (AAP) protest at Rail Bhavan, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Monday said that laws were not made on streets, and that there was a lawful way to address to the issues AAP had.
“I would like to request Kejriwal to stop trying to make laws on the roads. Laws are not made on streets, there is a lawful way to address to the issues,” he added.
He further said that it was the duty of the police to stop Kejriwal if he was creating a disorder in the capital.
“The first duty of the police is to maintain peace as it comes under their responsibility. In such a case if the CM wants to cause disorder, Delhi Police will obviously not support him,” said Singh.
“What does he expect them to do? Put garlands around him?” he said.
Arvind Kejriwal and other AAP leaders were stopped at Rail Bhavan by the Delhi Police while heading for a protest outside Union Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde's office demanding action against Delhi Police today.
The party then started protesting in Rail Bhavan itself, demanding action against Delhi Police personnel for alleged dereliction of duty.
Party leader Sanjay Singh made it clear yesterday that AAP will stage the protest if no action is taken against the police officers.
AAP is demanding the suspension of the station house officers (SHO) of Sagarpur and Malviya Nagar police stations and two assistant commissioners of police.
