Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee president Ch. Anil Kumar said that yet another instance of ever-worsening law and order situation in the Capital was exposed before the people when a mobile phone shop owner was robbed and assaulted in full public view by criminals at Rajinder Nagar, where the Assembly by-election campaigns are hotting up. Congress has fielded former Municipal Councillor Smt. Prem Lata as its candidate, and the deteriorating law and order situation is a major poll issue for her. He said that both the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party candidates were spreading all sorts of lies and falsehood in a bid to mislead the people, but have done nothing to tighten security, which is a mandatory requirement when as Assembly by-election is due to take place.
Ch. Anil Kumar, accompanied by AICC Delhi In-Charge Shri Shakti Sinh Gohil, AICC secretary Shri Manish Chatrath and Shri Bhram Yadav visited the shop and assured the owner that Congress will take up the matter and will ensure that the culprits were brought to book and he gets compensation for his losses.
Ch. Anil Kumar said that law and order has deteriorated to such terrible depths that police personnel are beaten up for questioning traffic violations, snatchings, robbery and assaults have become a common occurrence, as people dread to come out carrying valuables, but the BJP and AAP Governments seem to be least concerned about the safety and security of the people.
Ch. Anil Kumar said that while Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal was trying to save his corrupt Ministers and MLAs, including Minister Satyender Jain, whose custody under Enforcement Directorate has been extended to June 13, 2022, people of Rajinder Nagar are thirsting for potable water as the area has been facing acute water scarcity with the BJP and AAP doing nothing to solve this problem, though former AAP MLA from the area Raghav Chadha was the vice-chairman of the Delhi Jal Board. He said that broken roads and price rise have broken the back of the people in Rajinder Nagar, but BJP and AAP were only playing petty politics to serve their own personal interest.
