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.
