'Kejriwal's ways are not right' say Congress leaders

Digvijay, Tewari criticise Kejriwal
Bhopal, Jan 20: Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Monday criticised Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal over his dharna demanding action against police officials for alleged dereliction of duty, saying government is not run "on the streets".

He said the Aam Aadmi Party and Kejriwal should not interfere in the functioning of Delhi Police and the bureaucrat-turned-activist-turned politician must realise that no Government can be run by staging dharnas.

"Kejriwal must understand that a Government is run through Assemblies or Parliament and not on the streets of any city," the Congress General Secretary told reporters at his residence here. It was the Delhi Police's duty to maintain law and order in the national capital and the ruling Aam Aadmi Party should not interfere in their functioning, the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister maintained.

Singh: Government is not run "on the streets"

Meanwhile Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari said that Kejriwal's protest sit-in against alleged police inaction "is not going to work".

"You may have got the mandate to govern and made tall claims and you know you cannot deliver, so they are resorting to gimmickry," said the union minister.

Kejriwal and his Ministers on  began a dharna outside Rail Bhavan demanding action against police officials who refused to carry out a raid on an alleged drug and prostitution racket in South Delhi last week. The Chief Minister demanded immediate suspension of the "corrupt" officials.
