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.

Delhi’s ruling Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Sunday condemned the sealing of 51 premises in a posh south Delhi locality by officials of BJP-run MCDs and dubbed the party as pro-industrialists and against small businessmen.

“The sealing of shops in Defence Colony — and the way the three Municipal Corporations of Delhi run by the Bharatiya Janata Party have been conducting similar operations across the city — shows that the party wishes to help big industrialists,” AAP MLA Saurabh Bharadwaj told the media.

“First the BJP destroyed their (small businessmen’s) business through demonetisation, then their back was broken by the GST and now the BJP wants to destroy the markets by sealing these shops to help big industrialists open their shopping malls,” he said.

The South Delhi Municipal Corporation on Friday sealed 51 commercial units in the Defence Colony market on the charge of non-payment of conversion charges under the Master Plan Delhi 2021.

A Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee headed by Environment Pollution Prevention and Control Authority Chairman Bhure Lal inspected the market in the morning and directed the corporation to seal the floors above the commercial units.

Bharadwaj said there were reports that similar operations are to be conducted in other big markets across the city like South Extension and Green Park.

“Businessmen are being misguided and intimidated by BJP leaders under the Master Plan 2021 to pay huge amounts as conversion charges. Shops of those who have paid these charges have also been sealed,” he claimed.

The AAP leader said there was a simple solution to this problem. “If the MCDs spare them of conversion charges, the problem can be solved very easily but the BJP doesn’t have the intention to work for small businessmen.”
