The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) proposal to form a commission of inquiry to address the issue of crime against women, has been strongly criticized by the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) who termed it as “illegal.”

In the one-day special Assembly session on Monday, called to discuss the deteriorating law and order situation and women’s safety, the AAP government put forth a proposal to set up a commission of inquiry, which will include a judge, to recommend viable action in cases of crime against women in the city.

But as soon as Women and Child, and Social Welfare Minister Sandeep Kumar tabled the resolution, BJP MLAs termed it is illegal and walked out of the Assembly.

Leader of the Opposition in Delhi Assembly Vijender Gupta said, “The commission of inquiry is in contravention of Rule number 239AA.”

“Setting up a commission is only a drama to mislead the people of Delhi. The Assembly cannot set up a commission of inquiry on matters beyond Assembly’s jurisdiction, so it is illegal,” he added.

The special Assembly session was held after a tiff between the AAP government and Delhi Police, in regard to the murder of a 19-year-old girl in Anand Parbhat area on July 16. The AAP government had blamed the police of taking the case “lightly”, with claims that her life could have been saved if her complaint against the accused was taken seriously.

The session scheduled for July 28 was later postponed due to the death of former President APJ Abdul Kalam.

Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Monday accused Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government of being anti-Dalit and said his party will defeat the BJP in 2019 Lok Sabha elections. Gandhi, who led his party’s day-long fast at Rajghat to highlight atrocities against Dalits and other communities, said party workers were protesting against an ideology, a way of thinking.

Rahul Gandhi is against Modi and his rule.

“The atmosphere that has been created in the country, it is due to the ideology of the BJP. BJP’s ideology is to divide the country, crush the Dalits, tribals, minorities. We are against the ideology of the BJP. We are standing against it today, we will stand against it throughout our lives. And we will defeat them in the 2019 elections,” Gandhi told reporters.

Asked about BJP Dalit MPs writing to Modi with their complaints, Gandhi said: “You talk to them in Parliament. They also tell us that Modiji is a casteist person, an anti-Dalit person. He has no place for Dalits in his heart, the whole country knows this. It is not a secret.”

Gandhi attacked BJP President Amit Shah for likening the coming together of opposition parties to “snakes, mongoose, dogs and cats” climbing a tree trunk to save themselves from floods. He said every person in the country was against the BJP.

“Some days back a BJP leader said that opposition members were animals. The truth is that today every person in the country is standing against the government. The approach that this government has against Dalits, tribals, minorities and farmers, we are standing against it,” he said. Gandhi said the country will not accept that Modi government “spreads violence, hatred in the country… We are standing here against this ideology.”
