Emergency-like situation, says AAP government

New Delhi: Delhi’s AAP government on Tuesday accused Lt. Governor Najeeb Jung of unleashing an “Emergency-like situation” after its Law Minister Jitender Singh Tomar was arrested amid high drama over an alleged fake degree.

Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia told the media that vested interests were ganging up against AAP government because of its anti-corruption campaign but vowed that Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won’t be cowed down.

Sisodia said although the issue of Tomar’s alleged fake degree was in the court, about 40 police personnel swooped on Tomar’s office and took him away as if he was a fugitive.

Delhi Police does not report to the AAP government but to the Lt. Governor and the union home ministry.

“The police told Tomar they had come to see some documents… They asked him to accompany them to his house. On the way they told his driver to get off and took charge of his vehicle and told him he was being detained.

“They told Tomar that he could ask someone to bring the documents to the police station…

“What is going on?” asked a livid Sisodia. “Was he (Tomar) running away? Did he explode bombs in Delhi? There is an allegation (against him). The matter is in the court. What was the need to arrest him?”

Sisodia added: “There is something wrong… This arrest is illegal. There is an Emergency-like situation. This is supposed to be a democracy… Maybe it is an attempt to teach the AAP a lesson (for what we are doing).”
