Delhi Police reacts to Kejriwal’s comment on security
May 20, 2019
Recently, Delhi Chief Minister (CM) Arvind Kejriwal alleged that his life is at threat because the BJP has been targeting him. Taking a dig at Delhi police, Kejriwal added that he might be killed by his own security personals who report to the BJP. He compared his fate to that of India's former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi who was assassinated by her security guards. The Delhi police reacted to Kejriwal by saying that they are committed to providing security to all top leaders in Delhi.

Kejriwal made the statement after he was slapped by a man during one of his election rallies. The Delhi CM, who was on top of a jeep, was hit hard by a man wearing a red shirt. According to police reports, the man used to be an ex worker for AAP. Vijender Gupta, Leader of Opposition in Delhi assembly alleged that Kejriwal had said that he does not need any security the day he was attacked of which he has ample proof. He had asked the personals to disperse as well.
"I request @HMOIndia to withdraw all the security of @ArvindKejriwal The guy is a lost case and he doesn't deserve it! Such a psychopath can do any damage to himself and then put the blame on security or policy. His security should be withdrawn until he apologises earnestly, tweeted Akali Dal leader Manjinder S Sirsa.
This is not the first time that Kejriwal has been criticising the Delhi Police. In 2015, he called Delhi Police Thulla sparking controversy. The Delhi Police even filed a defamation case against Delhi CM for his remark.
