Arvind Kejriwal terms Delhi’s law & order situation as Jungle-Raaj

New Delhi,(| Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday took a dig at the Centre over law & order situation termed it “Jungle-Raaj”. Kejriwal said that holding meetings would not do anything, the Centre does not have any concrete plan to improve the law & order conditions in the national capital.
The Centre needs to prioritise its own responsibility of law & order and let the elected Delhi government run in peace, said Kejriwal.Kejriwal alleged that the Centre’s misplaced priorities leading to a state of lawlessness in the national capital.

CM questioned the efficacy of holding mere meetings, emphasising the need for a concrete and comprehensive plan to improve law and order in Delhi.He expressed disappointment over the situation and said, “If the Centre cannot handle Delhi’s law & order, then they should give the police to the state government, which will make Delhi safe.”Kejriwal was attending an event in the city where he inaugurated EV Charging Points on Tuesday, there, the media sought his response about a meeting convened by the Lieutenant Governor on law and order. The meeting came in the backdrop of continuous concerns raised by the CM about the worsening situation and short-staffing in police stations.

Reacting to the same, he stated, “It appears the central government lacks a concrete plan to improve law and order in Delhi. Merely convening meetings will not suffice, it is merely a formality. Yesterday, we witnessed the shocking incident of a car being stopped and a bag being looted in broad daylight at Pragati Maidan underpass in Delhi, very close to the planned G-20 venue. This incident, captured on camera, exemplifies the lawlessness here.””It is alarming to witness a ‘Jungle Raj’ prevailing within the national capital, leading to a deep sense of insecurity among its residents,” Kejriwal alleged.
