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.

With most senior leaders in the BJP having retired from active politics, the Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS) is now looking towards building a new leadership. Later this month, the RSS will be holding camps in Uttar Pradesh to discuss ways to identify and groom young leaders.

According to a senior RSS functionary in Lucknow, the first camp in this regard will be held in Jhansi, possibly on June 29 and RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat will be attending it. Another camp is scheduled to be held in Lucknow.

“After Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah, there seems to be a dearth of second rung leadership in the bhBJP. There is a need to develop leadership that will carry forward the work initiated by these two leaders.

“Rajnath Singh is a senior leader, but his age is 67. He would have crossed 70 by the time the next general elections are held in 2024. We have to identify and inculcate leadership qualities in the younger lot,” the functionary said.

He further said that identifying young talent that could be groomed for greater responsibilities was a continuous process in the organisation and it never stopped.

“It is not a sudden decision but the RSS leadership always has a vision for the future and thinks ahead. We keep finding young people with leadership skills,” the functionary added.

Earlier this month, the RSS chief had underlined the need for checking misuse of power at a four-day camp that he addressed in Kanpur.

“Those getting elected in a democratic set-up have immense power, but this does not mean that it should be misused. If the government falters at any point of time, the Sangh will give it advice and suggestions with a positive point of view,” he had said.

The RSS chief had also discussed the topics of nationalism, social equality and service in his interaction with over 600 volunteers. He also focused on qualitative development of the Sangh volunteers and apprised them of his views on dedication towards society.

The RSS leadership is also expected to come to Lucknow for a separate camp at the end of this month. In Lucknow, the RSS leaders will pay homage to senior journalist Rajnath Singh Surya, who passed away earlier this month. Surya was also a senior RSS functionary.

Officially, however, the RSS office bearers said that they had yet to receive any programme of Bhagwat and said that such camps were a ‘routine affair’. (IANS)
