AAP leader Raghav Chadha detained by Delhi police ahead of a planned protest outside Amit Shah’s residence

The party had planned a protest on Sunday against the alleged misappropriation of funds by New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) under BJP

Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leaders Raghav Chadha and Atishi were detained by Delhi police ahead of a planned protest outside union Home Minister Amit Shah’s residence. The party had planned a protest on Sunday against the alleged misappropriation of funds by New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) under BJP. Chadha, Vice Chairman of Delhi Jal Board (DHB), was detained at the Rajendra Nagar Police station as per the party officials. However, Atishi was later released by Delhi police.

AAP did not get permission to protest outside HM residence

AAP has further alleged that Sanjeev Jha, Rituraj Govind, and Kuldeep Kumar were also detained by the police officials of their respective constituencies’ police stations. Delhi Police had earlier rejected the party’s request to hold a demonstration outside Amit Shah’s residence. The permission was denied pertaining Covid-19 situation. The Delhi Police had said, “Any type of gathering is not allowed outside the residence of Hon’ble home minister of India. Your request has been considered but rejected. You are requested to co-operate with the Delhi Police.”

Chadha in a tweet said that all the money they pay to MCD is swindled by the MCD officials. “Now the Mayor and Councilors of BJP are sitting outside the Chief Minister’s house demanding 13,000 crores more.” He further added that when they try to meet HM Shah they get detained.

AAP demanded CBI inquiry

On Saturday, the AAP officials have said that CBI should investigate the alleged misappropriation of Rs.2,500 crore in North Delhi and South Delhi municipal corporations. During the press conference, AAP spokesperson Atishi said that strict action should be taken in the cases. She further added that the doctors, nurses, medical staff, and teachers, and other Covid-19 warriors were not paid due to the alleged misappropriation.

She said, “The way the Delhi Police allowed BJP councilors to sit outside chief minister Arvind Kejriwal’s residence, I am sure they will allow us to sit outside the LG’s and the home minister’s residences at 11 AM tomorrow, and also provide us full protection.”

Raghav Chadha claimed detention in a tweet

Chadha tweeted at 11:26 AM and alleged that he had been detained after asking time to meet Home Minister Amit Shah.

He said in Hindi,” MCD under BJP has done the biggest scam of Rs.2,500 crore. We had asked time to meet Home Minister Amit Shah but he got me arrested at my residence. Amit Shah ji why do you want to hide curroption by your party with the help of police.?”

Spokesperson and Incharge BJP Delhi Media Relations Harish Khurana quoted Chadha and said that either bring proof of misappropriation of funds in three days or ace legal action in court. “You cannot accuse and run away like before,” he added.
