IB report says Arvind Kejriwal's life in danger; Delhi CM reiterates his no to security cover
Chief minister of Delhi Arvind Kejriwal is facing threat to his life from the water and tender mafia according to the inputs submitted by the Intelligence Bureau to the Delhi Police. The IB in its report has said that due to Arvind Kejriwal's determination to curb corruption these two areas, the mafia is sensing problems in executing their illegal activities.
According to the various media reports the water and tender may take the help of criminals to attack on Arvind Kejriwal. However, despite the information of threat to his life, Kejriwal has reiterated today that he will not take any security cover. While talking to media he said that there was no risk to his life.
“There is no threat to my life. A common man needs more security than me. There are lots of police deployed in VIP security which is hampering security of a common man. I will not take any security,” said Arvind Kejriwal.
When we spoke to Delhi's SC & ST, Employment, Development and Labour minister Girish Soni about the IB report he said that the party members will sit and discuss the issue of security cover to Kejriwal in a meeting today.
Although Kejriwal had declined to take any security cover but the UP Police is giving him Z-category security in wake of the recent attack on AAP's office at Kaushambi in UP's Ghaziabad district. A 30-member team of UP police personnel would be deployed round-the-clock to provide security to Kejriwal in UP.
On this issue UP's ex-DGP Prakash Singh has to say that Arvind Kejriwal should let the police officials do their job of providing him security cover.
“If the Delhi police is providing him some sort of security than it has to beefed up, and its not optional for a chief minister to reject the security. If anything happens to Mr. Kejriwal then who will be responsible. Kejriwal Should let the police officials do their work.”
