Delhi govt on road: I am anarchist, says CM Arvind Kejriwal

New Delhi, Jan 20: As the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government came out on streets in full protest against Delhi Police in Rail Bahvan on Monday, the Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said that he is an "anarchist".

"Some say I am an anarchist, yes I am. There is lawlessness in every home in the city, and today I'll spread disorder in the home minister's house," said Kejriwal.

"Rapes keep happening in Delhi every other day, and the police say that the investigation is on. Someone needs to be held responsible for the carelessness and increasing crime, curbing which is the responsibility of the Delhi police then why should Delhi Police not be held responsible for the rapes?" asked Kejriwal.

"Yesterday in Delhi, Law Minister Somnath Bharti's area, a dead body was found on road, he kept calling the police, but they didn't respond. Now if a minister calls the police, and they don't respond, what is the minister to do?" he asked.

"We are here for the security of the women of Delhi, and not to indulge in politics,' he added.

Meanwhile, Congress and BJP slammed Kejriwal for holding dharna by calling it as "anarchic" and "drama".

Information and Broadcasting Minister Manish Tewari Monday termed the protest sit-in by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and his cabinet colleagues as "constitutional anarchy" and "gimmickry".

"The situation we have seen today on the streets of Delhi is anarchic. This is a mock-fight between AAP and its ally Congress. Such an agitation--which is taking place near Rajpath where the Republic Day rehearsals are on-- affects the aam admi (common man) and both the parties are responsible for it," BJP spokesperson Nirmala Sitharaman said.

AICC secretary Sanjay Nirupam asked Kejriwal to stop indulging in "drama" and instead concentrate on governance.
