The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) Chief Spokesperson Saurabh Bharadwaj on Thursday said law and order system in the national capital has been "completely demolished" with BJP ministers thrashing people in the streets. Bharadwaj's remarks came as he talked about a case where a senior citizen, Santosh Kumar Gupta (who narrated the incidence to Bharadwaj) was beaten and threatened by BJP's local Lok Sabha leader Suraj Chauhan (husband of BJP councilor candidate Pratibha Chauhan) and his driver Ravi in August this year. Bharadwaj said the victim had gone to Malviya Nagar Police station with a CCTV recording of the assault, where he was told to wait for 2 hours and even after that the police did not register the complaint. On the other hand, the Malviya Nagar SHO told IANS that no FIR has been registered and that the matter between Santosh and the BJP politician was already resolved.

New Delhi: Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Monday joined the nationwide shutdown protest called by the Congress saying they were against the fuel price rise but not supporting the Congress party.

AAP Leaders, MPs, and MLAs joined the Bharat Bandh called by the Congress and Left and joined a protest march of opposition parties here on Monday.

“The AAP is of the clear view that all opposition parties must unite and force the Modi government to reverse its anti-people policies which are solely responsible for the price rise, particularly the unprecedented rise in prices of petrol and diesel,” AAP spokesperson Saurabh Bhardwaj said in a statement.

But he added that the Congress cannot be “the umbrella under which all opposition parties are comfortable”.

“Congress has to shun its big brother and unreasonable attitude towards other parties. No political party in India is subservient to Congress and it must bear this fact in mind,” he said.
