Arvind Kejriwal, the controversial Chief Minister of Delhi, who is often known to change his views in a short span of time has once again taken a similar U-turn. Kejriwal has now referred the Delhi police as his ‘family’ and claimed that he respect men in uniform, reported ANI.
The showering of praises from Kejriwal is rather peculiar as the Delhi Chief Minister has often used derogatory remarks against the Delhi Police. Arvind Kejriwal had earlier used an abusive term ‘Thulla’ to refer Delhi Police. The Delhi High Court had stepped in after a Delhi Police constable had filed a criminal defamation against Kejriwal for his abusive remarks.
Arvind Kejriwal took a U-turn regarding his views on Delhi Police on Saturday while presenting cheques of Rs.1 crore to the family members of the police officers as part of Delhi government’s compensation policy. Delhi government’s compensation policy covers armed forces, police and paramilitary officials who die in the line of duty in the national capital.
Addressing the gathering Kejriwal said, “Today we enjoy a sense of security for ourselves, our children and our family because of courageous policemen like Birendra Singh and Deepak Kumar.”
He further said that AAP government wanted to compensate the two martyrs within a month of their martyrdom but could not as LG obstructed the policy. He further said that there may be some officers who are politically motivated, but that doesn’t mean that the Delhi Police is bad. He added that the whole country feels safe because of the policemen and security forces.
It is amusing considering Arvind Kejriwal himself keeps referring to Delhi Police as a force which works for Modi.
दिल्ली पुलिस से भाजपा की लठैत विंग तक का सफर…

He has cast aspersions that Delhi Police has tried to help criminals.
क्या पुलिस दोषियों की फ़्री में मदद कर रही है?
पैसा कहाँ तक पहुँचता है?
LG साहिब और भाजपा कुछ कर क्यों नहीं रहे? https://t.co/Y1JqeOvKmx

He has also accused Delhi Police of working on instructions of the BJP.
What happened today is pretty serious. Delhi police virtually handed over the CM, the ministers and the entire Del govt program in the hands of hooligans. Can Delhi police be entrusted with the security of Delhi govt and its functionaries? Delhi govt will explore legal options https://t.co/wPW8bozUv7

Arvind Kejriwal’s flip-flop on Delhi Police is amusing, to say the least.
