AAP MLAs want compensation to Delhi Police martyrs to be stopped

Kejriwal was on Tuesday afternoon attacked by a middle-aged man with chilli powder when he stepped out of his office after a meeting inside the Delhi Secretariat.

Aam Aadmi Party MLAs on Wednesday demanded party chief, Arvind Kejriwal to exclude Delhi police personnel from the government policy that gives Rs 1 crore compensation to the families of martyrs, as per reports.

Several party members, irked by the latest chilli powder attack on Delhi Chief Minister and party head, Arvind Kejriwal, signed a letter, urging him to stop compensation to families of Delhi police martyrs, on a day Kejriwal was in Haryana to hand over an Rs. 1 crore cheque to the family of Border Security Force jawan Narendra Singh, who was killed along the Pakistan border earlier this year.

Kejriwal was on Tuesday afternoon attacked by a middle-aged man with chilli powder when he stepped out of his office after a meeting inside the Delhi Secretariat.

According to AAP MLAs, since the Delhi police have failed to protect the Chief Minister, who has allegedly been attacked four times in the last two years, they should not be a part of the AAP government’s policy.

Accusing the Delhi police to be biased and following orders of a particular party, the legislators said that after the repeated incidents, there is “a question mark on the intention of the Delhi Police”.

BJP has, however, condemned the chilli powder incident. Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters that such acts are “not acceptable” and the person who has been arrested for attacking the Aam Aadmi Party chief should be thoroughly interrogated.

Nonetheless, in a letter, the MLAs wrote to Kejriwal that the “compensation should be given to all other forces, including military and paramilitary forces, and Delhi Police should be excluded from the list”.

In July, the Delhi Cabinet had re-approved its scheme of giving Rs 1 crore compensation to the kin of Delhi-based security personnel from all the three services of Indian Armed Force, Delhi Police, paramilitary forces, Fire Service, Home Guards, and district disaster force killed on duty.
