AAP MLA Naresh Balyan, who called for assault on IAS officers booked by police

The Delhi police had booked AAP MLA Naresh Balyan for making inflammatory remarks and openly calling for an assault on government officials. An FIR under the relevant sections of Indian Penal Code has been filed at the Dabri police station in Dwarka against the MLA. He represents the Uttam Nagar constituency in Delhi.

The FIR has been lodged on the complaint of a policeman who was on duty in JJ Colony in Bindapur where Naresh Balyan made the remarks.

Naresh Balyan made these remarks trying to justify the alleged assault on the chief secretary of Delhi at the CM’s residence last week. He said that government officers who create delays in public work should be thrashed.

The Aam Aadmi Party had tweeted that they condemn the remarks of Naresh Balyan but had not taken any actions against him.

Naresh Balyan being booked comes as fresh trouble for Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal as earlier today the joint forum of government employees have demanded an apology from Kejriwal. The had called the assault on chief secretary Anshu Prakash a ‘conspiracy’ and demanded that the CM must issue a formal apology for the incident.

The Delhi police had entered the CM’s residence to examine the CCTV cameras last week. They had informed that they were running forty minuted behind the time. The time difference in the cameras corroborates with the chief secretaries statement that the assault had happened at around midnight because AAP supporters had tried to refute his claims showing images CCTV footage which showed the chief secretary leaving the premises at 11.30.

AAP MLAs Amanatullah Khan and Prakash Jarwal are in the police custody on allegations of assault on the chief secretary. Their bail plea was dismissed by the court on February 23. Today Prakash Jarwal has applied for bail on which decision has been reserved.

The AAP government in Delhi is going deeper into troubles. As the IAS association also has come up against the Kejriwal government and its leaders are facing charges, it remains to be seen how long it will last.
