New Delhi: Launching an attack on the Delhi police on Tuesday, chief minister Arvind Kejriwal said that the city’s force is holding meetings to discuss ways to send Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) legislators to jail.

He said that it should invest “a fraction of (that) time and energy” in improving law and order and women safety, which is “worst” under Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s regime.

“Shameful that cops are meeting to discuss how to send Aam Aadmi  Party MLAs to jail. I wish they had spent a fraction of (that) time and energy on providing security to women and improving law and order, which is worst today during the Modi regime,” he said.

Mr Kejriwal shared a news article, which claimed that the special commissioner of police (Law and Order) of the southern range of the city had called a meeting to plan strategy as cases against Aam Aadmi Party leaders were not holding up in court.

“Fix responsibility. Who directed these false cases — lieutenant-governor or Prime Minister? Were police officers given written directions by L-G/PM? If yes, make written directions public. If not, the police officers who followed illegal verbal directions must face severe punishment,” the Delhi chief minister added.
