30 retired IPS officers of DGP rank open front against Kejriwal, complaint to President
Ahmedabad : Now the counting days are left for the assembly elections in the state. Then the convener of Aam Aadmi Party and Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s push for Gujarat has increased further. Then last week when Arvind Kejriwal came on a tour of Gujarat, he ate food at the house of a rickshaw puller and sitting in his own rickshaw, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal reached the rickshaw-wala’s house in Dantani Nagar, Ghatlodia in his own rickshaw. Earlier, there was a scuffle with the police at Hotel Taj Skyline, who stopped her from boarding a rickshaw due to protocol.
Kejriwal took an assurance of security in writing and from there along with the police in a rickshaw reached the house of Ghatlodia rickshaw driver, where a large number of workers and people gathered, creating chaos. When the police surrounded Kejriwal, the crowd pushed him. Due to the uncontrolled crowd, there was a scuffle for some time. 30 retired IPS officers have written a letter to the President against Arvind Kejriwal.
The letter mentions Arvind Kejriwal’s misbehavior with police officers during a rickshaw ride in Ahmedabad. Apart from this, it has been said in the letter that the statement of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal has created panic in the police department.
It is noteworthy that earlier more than 50 retired bureaucrats had written to the Election Commission regarding the cancellation of recognition of the ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) of Delhi and Punjab. 56 former civil servants have written to the Election Commission of India (ECI) demanding withdrawal of recognition of the Aam Aadmi Party for “destroying electoral democracy”. These former civil servants pointed to the ‘unbalanced and controversial’ remarks made by Delhi Chief Minister and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal during a press conference in Gujarat.
Former bureaucrats have urged the Chief Election Commissioner to derecognise the Aam Aadmi Party after its leader Arvind Kejriwal recently tried to bribe government officials in Gujarat to benefit the party in the assembly polls.
The former civil servants said in the letter, “Such provocative remarks by AAP’s convener and incumbent chief minister undoubtedly undermine the public’s trust in state institutions and parents.” Referring to Sections 6A and 123 of the Representation of the People Act, 1951, he said AAP is indulging in corrupt practices and its convener appeal is destroying the democracy of elections and weakening public service.
