New Delhi, Mar 6: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Ashutosh on Thursday accused the Delhi Police of being hand in glove with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after the police arrested 14 AAP members for clashes outside the saffron party office here.
Ashutosh said that the police force is functioning at the behest of BJP’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi.
“It shows that Delhi police is biased. They are taking order from Narendra Modi not from Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde,” he added.
“Not a single BJP worker has been arrested so far. How can anyone believe that? Our AAP workers were hurt themselves?, he asked.
“Why no BJP worker and leader is arrested till now? Why only AAP leaders and volunteers arrested?, Can you believe it Prof Anand Kumar, the most respected professor is arrested and Nalin Kohli is roaming free?” he said.
Ashutosh’s reactions came shortly after Delhi Police named him, Shazia Ilmi, Prof Anand Kumar and several other AAP workers in its FIR filed in Parliament Street Police Station, which says that the party workers illegally gathered outside BJP headquarters in Delhi.
AAP workers on Wednesday fought pitched battles with BJP activists outside the saffron party headquarters here hours after AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal was detained briefly in Gujarat.
The Gujarat Police stated that Kejriwal had not taken permission from them to hold road show. (ANI)
