New Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party on Tuesday alleged that the “fake FIR by chief secretary Anshu Prakash” and the subsequent charge sheet by the “BJP-controlled Delhi police” is aimed at maligning the Delhi government, “which will fall flat in the court like previous cases.”

In a statement, AAP chief spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj said, “Fake FIR by Prakash and subsequent bogus charge sheet by Bharatiya Janata Party-controlled Delhi police are part of a larger design to malign the Delhi government.”

 

He said that Mr Prakash was posted in Delhi by the Narendra Modi government with the motive of “paralysing the Delhi government.”

“Modi government’s Delhi police filed so many bogus cases against the chief minister, deputy chief minister, and MLAs during the last three and a half years — all of which miserably fell flat in the courts during trials,” Mr Bharadwaj said, adding that the latest case will also meet the same fate.

The party’s reaction came after the Patiala House court summoned chief minister Arvind Kejriwal, deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia, and 11 AAP MLAs in the case of the alleged assault on Mr Prakash.

 

Mr Bharadwaj said the Modi government is “insecure” about the Delhi government’s pro-people agenda and hence it will “leave no stone unturned in troubling the AAP government.”

“The doorstep delivery scheme of the Delhi government, which was launched last week, is being appreciated the world over. This pro-people agenda is making Modi’s Central government insecure. During the last three and a half years, the Modi government has left no stone unturned in troubling our government,” he said.

The chief secretary had alleged that he was assaulted by AAP MLAs in the presence of Mr Kejriwal at the CM’s residence on the night of February 19. Subsequently, in August the police chargesheeted Mr Kejriwal, Mr Sisodia, Amanatullah Khan, Prakash Jarwal, Nitin Tyagi, Rituraj Govind, Sanjeev Jha, Ajay Dutt, Rajesh Rishi, Rajesh Gupta, Madan Lal, Parveen Kumar, and Dinesh Mohania.
