In the wake of gangrape of two minor girls in Delhi, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal today took on the Centre over policing and said he will not let Prime Minister Narendra Modi sleep “peacefully” if such incidents recur.

Maintaining that ‘jungle raj’ prevailed in the national capital, Arvind Kejriwal called for handing over law and order to his dispensation for one year.

“The Prime Minister must understand I am not (previous Chief Minister) Sheila Dikshit. I will not remain silent.

“We will not allow the Prime Minister to sleep peacefully if women in Delhi do not get proper safety and the present trend of rapes continues, that is guaranteed,” Kejriwal told reporters after meeting Lieutenant Governor Najeeb Jung.

‘Jungle raj’ is prevailing in the capital and it was a matter of “deep concern”, Kejriwal said and appealed to the Centre to “stop being stubborn and hand over law and order control” to his dispensation for one year.

The chief minister said his government was exploring all the options to ensure safety of women.

“A cabinet meeting, to discuss the issue, has been convened tomorrow,” he said.

On his meeting with LG Jung, Kejriwal said he submitted figures relating to crime against women and cases of missing children.

“We met the LG along with last four year’s record on crime cases. Around 31,000 cases of crime against women were recorded. Out of these, chargesheets were filed in only 13,000 cases and in 18,000 cases there was no charge sheet.

“Only 146 people were punished overall, so you can see how safe our women are,” he said.

Kejriwal also ridiculed ‘Himmat App’ launched by Delhi Police and said that only 13 out of 4,000 cases were properly addressed that came in purview of this initiative.

He also said to have questioned Jung on “democratic control” over police during the meeting, which lasted around 45 minutes.

“There is absolutely no democratic control on Delhi Police which is very dangerous for a democratic country. I assure that we will change the whole Delhi as we have done in other areas under our control,” he said.

      This is a direct challenge to Mr. Modi the PM of India. As the PM, de facto head of BJP and as an Individual Mr. Modi is a very strong personality. AK was a mosquito that our PM ignored so far, but from now on AK will get to face the Real Mr. Modi, at the time of choosing of the PM before 2019. Waiting for that sweet day, if not Mr. Modi has no business to head this country.

        The recent rapes of minor girls were done by minor boys. Its not a law and order problem but a social problem. Mr. Kejriwal, anyway, Modi doesn't sleep so your statement has no meaning that you will not allow Modi to sleep peacefully. And, by the way, on what basis did you promise in your manifesto that you will make delhi safer for girls if you have no role in it ? You are busy commenting about Dadri incident. Your only role is blaming others.

              I am not Sheila dik. I will not let modi sleep. these are the filmi slogans to fill up media space and not a pragmatic statement expected from a chief minister. what are his party's commitment to delhites ? or just an escape route of delhi is not a full state. so I am helpless.modi is responsible for everything bad and not aap. he thinks defends himself that aap is above criticism. is it not anarchic ?

                modijee is not manmohan singh either,he must note.kejri has got too bigger for his boots.this language he has borrowerd from lalu/nitish who have become his guide now.locally also he has so many qualified friends,and guides like somnath bharti,jitendra tomar and asim khan.so no wonder this decline in his standards is due to such company only.nice people he has already expelled from his party.any intemperate language used against prime minister of this country,will have serious repercussions on political career.as people are observing all his drama.

                          Kejriwal is only interested in propaa & publicity who is not caring for problems faced by citizens of Delhi. He should streamline working of DELHI GOVT rather than fighting for powers. This can also be done provided he should prove his ability with corruption free good governance which is lacking in AAP govt when one after another minister are caught in graft and other serious offences. So he should see that his govt is in order rather than interfering with other matter which is totally unjustified and this is done only to hide weakness of AAP govt who is failing on all fronts.

                            Get your facts right. Don't jump to conclusions. Modi is a visionary and he is doing everything right in his capacity to get the nation in the right path. Media and all other SICKULAR parties are getting sleepless as they don't want our country to progress.

                                The criminal nexus between the LG and the BJP will ensure that it can reduce the power and effects of the AAP in Delhi. But the cost to the moral authority of the BJP (and congress, which is totally with BJP on this) will in the long term hopefully lead to the complete destruction of the two parties.

                                  Somebody [Maybe Media?] needs to tell Kejriwal , that let alone PM, he is not equivalent to CM's of other full states. He much lower grade. Just playing for TV and doing protest will go on for some time. But, ultimately, people are not s, as he is taking them to be. They will understand.

                                    Kejari is coughing too much !! He should put on his muffler and pretend to be sick sympathy once again as he has nothing else to do. Using Modi's name is the only thing he is left with. He is such a small insect compared to Modi's personality. One can see Kejari's body language and facial expression that he is already insecure and having sleepless nights. Modi will make entire gang of sickularist and self seekers loose their sleep, so where is this little small fry Kejari. AAP MLAs will soon desert him and choose a new leader sooner than later.
