New Delhi, Jan 21: Delhiites are shivering from the chilling winds of winter but the present political scenario in the national capital has heated up the temperature.

It's not been even a month that the Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) formed the government with the 'outside support' of Congress.

But, since the time AAP has come in power and has got the 'golden opportunity' to serve the aam aadmi (common man) of Delhi, their government has once again come out on streets and roads against the Delhi Police.

It seems that the 'anarchism' and 'dharna' has become the 'USP' of the AAP. On Monday, Kejriwal even agreed that he is an 'anarchist'.

Two top leaders of AAP- Kumar Vishwas and Delhi Law minister Somnath Bharti are at the helm of 'earning public's ire' because of former's 'sexist' remarks against Kerala nurses and latter's 'racial slur' remarks against African women.

Bharti ignited controversy as he conducted midnight raid in South Delhi.

Protest against Somnath Bharti

On Monday, Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee (DPCC) held a protest to demand the arrest of Law Minister Somnath Bharti after allegations that he and some AAP activists 'misbehaved' with African nationals at Khirki Extension in his Malviya Nagar constituency in South Delhi on the midninght of January 15.

The Delhi Pradesh Mahila Congress (DPMC) was also a part of the protest. Women activists of the Congress marched to the Delhi Police headquarters demanding Bharti's arrest.

Meanwhile, the BJP has termed AAP's governance as 'racist, discriminatory, violent and anarchic' and has demanded immediate removal of Bharti after a court directed police to file a FIR against him for allegedly entering some African women's home.

Here are some pics of the protest:

Delhi Law minister Somnath Bharti is at the centre of a raging row as he tried to raid an alleged drug and prostitution ring but the police refused to do his bidding citing lack of warrant. He had a verbal argument with a police official after he refused to conduct a raid at a building.

Despite mounting pressure on him to quit as Delhi's Law Minister, Bharti said, "How will the inquiry panel complete its probe against the guilty officers if they are not even suspended from office. How can you guarantee that the probe will be fair with those who are guilty still continuing in their office?"

Bharti also said, "Delhi is suffering because of incompetence of Delhi police. We believe in 'Athithi devo bhava', people from Uganda and South Africa are welcome but wrong things shouldn't be allowed."
