Reacting to the protest by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) chief Arvinder Singh Lovely on Monday said that, looking at the situation in Delhi it seems that the AAP is trying to implement the Rowlatt act of the British times.

“A very unusual situation has come up in Delhi. People who are supposed to protect the constitution are trying to destroy it. It seems that AAP wants to implement the Rowlatt Act of British times again,” said Arvinder Singh Lovely.

“They are raiding houses without a warrant or permission, and protesting on streets demanding suspension of officers. Neither is there an appeal or lawyer. They are not following any law,” he said.

He further said that it Kejriwal was sitting in dharna only to defend and protect his ministers.

“When you are running a government, you have to do it according to the law. It is very unfortunate that the CM has left all his work, and is sitting on a dharna just to suspend three police officers, and defend his ministers,” he said.

“Executive agencies can't misuse law. There is a difference between running a government and running an agitation. They aren't protesting on any 3 issues but they are there to save their ministers,” he added.

“If they would have sat on a dharna because of a valid reason, it would have been understandable, but they are doing it to defend their ministers,” he said.

Kejriwal and other members of his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) staged a sit-in protest at the Railway Ministry building as they were not allowed to proceed to enforce their demand in the case involving Uganda nationals.

Party leader Sanjay Singh made it clear yesterday that AAP will stage a 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.
